In My Sin

Well now. Here we are. Over a year later. Good gravy, that's one long bender. We aint gonna guarantee daily postings or any of that nonsense, but we figger we can get a least a post or two a week up. Or not.

If you're new here, this is a site all about drinking songs. Nuthin' but carefree boozin'. We hope to reflect the Top 100 Drinking Songs we posted a couple years ago on our parent site, Big Rock Candy Mountain. And since all lists are flawed, and a hundred aint enough, we'll be posting all kinds of tipsy tunes not featured on the Top 100.

Now then,

To get us kick-started again, we've got a nifty little nipper from Louis Jordan. "What's The Use Of Getting Sober(When You're Gonna Get Drunk Again)" is a, ahem, cautionary dialogue between a son and his pappy about the dangers of all day and all night drinking. We think the son wins the argument:

"What's the use of getting sober
When you're gonna get drunk again
Oh Sam done something fine
When he bought that good whiskey, beer and wine
I love my whiskey and I love my gin
Every time you see me I'm in my sin
So what's the use of getting sober
When you're gonna get drunk again"

Yep, it's a good 'un.
