Best Booze Song?
(with comments)

Another good suggestion from a reader. What's the best song that has some type of alcoholic beverage in the title?

rum lady

Examples:

Note that we are not looking for songs about being drunk. The song title must have some kind of booze in the title.

Nominate as many songs as you like -- as long as the total is less than or equal to three.

    "Whiskey River" - by just about anybody. I'm partial to Willie Nelson though.

    "Let Me Go Home, Whiskey" - again by just about anyone. I kinda like Ann Rabson's version

    "Cigarettes and Whiskey" - the version I have is Ramblin' Jack Elliot

    Anything but "Margaritaville" - nice tune and I love Buffett, but isn't this like one of the most overplayed song, ever?

    I couldn't find any video of the above, but here is a guy doing a very credible rendition of Cider, by Bruce Molsky.

    Sorry, I misread that. Okay: Goodbye Booze -- Charlie Poole and the North Carolina Ramblers.

    "Bottle of Wine" - written and performed by Tom Paxton

    "Scotch and Soda" - it's alright by the Kingston Trio, but I heard a better version once, by a blues singer

    Glass of Gin - (Toot my own horn, so to speak)

    Red Red Wine by UB40, Neil Diamond or Tony Tribe and others.

    Actually I go with Michael Myett and Whiskey in the Jar by Thin Lizzy as my real favorite booze song.

    We also used to sing One Tequila, two Tequia, three Tequila floor, but not sure if there is a real song that comes from.

    Little Glass of Wine - Stanley Brothers

    Wine Me Up - Faron Young.

    Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down - Merle Haggard (tho' I suppose that could be a bottle of of non-alcohol, tho' THAT seems unlikely.)

    So, if that doesn't work, Poison Whiskey - Lynyrd Skynyrd

    Aaaaaaaaaaggghgghh!

    Unfortunately, you are right. Diamond's version was so lame, though, that he later started doing UB40's version. Bob Marley did a great one, too.

    Away, Away, with Rum by Gum!

    AWAY WITH RUM

    We're coming, we're coming, our brave little band;
    On the right side of temp'rance we now take our stand.
    We don't use tobacco because we all think,
    That the people who do so are likely to drink!

    Chorus:
    Away, away with rum, by gum,
    With rum by gum; with rum by gum.
    Away, away with rum by gum;
    The song of the Salvation Army.

    We never eat cookies because they have yeast;
    And one little bite makes a man like a beast.
    Oh, can you imagine a sadder disgrace
    Than a man in the gutter with crumbs on his face?

    We never eat fruitcake because it has rum,
    And one little slice puts a man on the bum.
    Oh can you imagine a sorrier sight
    Than a man eating fruitcake until he gets tight?

    The man who eats fruitcake leads a horrible life,
    He's mean to his children and he beats up his wife.
    The man who eats fruitcake dies a terrible death
    With the odor of raisins and rum on his breath.

    Rum and Coca-Cola.... Andrews Sisters


    Meg_Mac I like Run and Coca-Cola as well. I never really paid attention to the song until I heard the bit about "mother and daughter work'in for the yankee dollar".
    Sung long before the Andrews Sisters.

    I like Thin Lizzy's version but this is one of my all time favorite videos because of the way the Dublin audience is into it, the famous Irish traditional song...

    Couple of my favorites have already been listed--Tequila Sunrise (at #1) and Red, Red Wine (UB 40).

    Don't recall seeing Margaritaville above. Here's Jimmy...

    I'd also add Jerry Jeff Walker and his excellent recipe for Sangria Wine.
