More Drinkin' Songs

I hope it doesn't ruin her reputation, but it turns out that the Venerable's best friend Donna Marie Lewis has forgotten more drinking songs than I can recall. She sent a list of ten or so but the one I couldn't believe I forgot was one fun merely to say aloud let alone sing: Don't Come Home a' Drinkin' (With Loving on Your Mind) by the inestimable Loretta Lynn.

Also conspicuous by its omission was that song about lost shakers of salt - Buffet's Margaritaville. Straight Tequilia Night by John Anderson was another good one. Also Friends in Low Places and Sunday Morning Coming Down.

This link is particularly helpful. Oh my, Keith's Beer for my Horses. And Set 'Em Up Joe by Vern Gosdin...
