    I go to parties, sometimes till four
    It's hard to leave when you can't find the door.

    Life's been good to me so far.

    Joe Walsh


    I drink alone, Yeah with nobody else,
    You know when I drink alone,
    I prefer to by myself.

    I'd have to say it's all according to the mood one is looking to set...

    If you are drinking because you are depressed and ready to throw yourself off the roof... Beatles "Yer Blues" a total WOAH IS ME in a sickly kinda way song, is kinda nice...as is Hank Williams "I"m So Lonesome I Could Cry"

    If you are already UP on the roof, I'd suggest any Christmas song...the more upbeat, the better...

    Now, if you're in a light mood, drinking to Dean Martin, "Ain't That A Kick In The Head" works nicely...as do many of his other songs...

    If you're with a crowd and ya wanna do a sing-along, I'd opt for Delbert McClinton "Lonestar Blues"...it's better than the usual singalongs because it's not the typical ones...and it's easy to learn...

    I've actually seen him in concert twice....LOVE the guy! And I live in NY

    Hey, it's worth all the lyrics, so here goes:



    At a truck stop in St Angelo,
    I saw a billboard 'bout this rodeo,
    Last weekend out in El Paso,
    So I signed up to ride.

    I drew a bull called Original Sin,
    Heard he'd killed a couple of men.
    Figured this was somethin' I could win,
    'Cause the devil's on my side.

    I was havin' myself one hell of a ride,
    When I ended up disqualified,
    'Cause that danged old bull just up an' died,
    Before they blew the whistle.

    An' I got them North Texas blues,
    Thought I'd paid all my dues.
    Then them South Texas blues,
    Told me son you ain't through.
    Had them East Texas blues,
    An' then West Texas too.
    I've done all I know to do,
    To try to lose,
    To try to lose these lone star blues.

    I got laid off at Brown and Root,
    On my way back to Cut and Shoot,
    I lost my wristwatch an' my boots,
    Shootin' dice with a dude from Houston.

    There ain't no jobs here workin' cattle,
    So I got on part-time hauling gravel,
    With some outfit from Seattle,
    Down here building custom homes.

    Well, I got them North Texas blues,
    Thought I'd paid all my dues.
    Then them South Texas blues,
    Told me son you ain't through.
    Had them East Texas blues,
    An' then West Texas too.
    I've done all I know to do,
    Tryin' to lose,
    Tryin' to lose these lone star blues.

    Instrumental break.

    I gassed up my truck an' I packed my clothes.
    Turned in my key and I hit the road.
    I said Cow Town's where I'll go:
    You never know, I might get lucky.

    I got a friend there turnin' knobs,
    At this place called Billy Bob's.
    Said he could get me a job there,
    Working as a bouncer.

    First night on the job was just insane,
    Some old boy got all deranged.
    Hit me in the head with a Harley chain,
    To this day, my ears still ring.

    I got them North Texas blues,
    Thought I'd paid all my dues.
    Then them South Texas blues,
    Told me son you ain't through.
    Had them East Texas blues,
    An' then West Texas too.
    I've done all I know to do,
    Tryin' to lose,
    Tryin' to lose these lone star blues.

    I've done all I know to do,
    Tryin' to lose,
    Tryin' to lose these lone star blues.

    The Great Delbert McClinton is the best kept secret in the DFW area... most only know of his hit "Givin' Up for Your Love" and think he was a one hit wonder african-american guy...

    He is a man of many musical tastes and a great musician... and in fact... a white guy with alot of soul and talent with no set genre...

    I miss going to his shows when I lived in DFW... it was always a great time for all involved...
