Anyone have any suggestions?

Anyone else?

Against Me - Pints Of Guinness Make You Strong
Knucklehead - Summertime Beer Song
Blood For Blood - So Common, So Cheap (not really a drinking song, but a good one to sing along to with a bunch of friends and piss people off when you're loaded)

Also check out Dropkick Murphys.

The Pogues, the entire "Rum Sodomy and the Lash" album.

Particularly, "Sally MacLennane:"

Well Jimmy played harmonica in the pub where I was born
He played it from the night time to the peaceful early morn
He soothed the souls of psychos and the men who had the horn
And they all looked very happy in the morning

Now Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
Where the elephant man broke strong men's necks
When he'd had too many Powers
So sad to see the grieving of the people that he's leaving
And he took the road for God knows in the morning

We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him a song of times long gone
Though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
(Far away) sad to say I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away (far away)
I'd like to think of me returning when I can
To the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane

The years passed by the times had changed I grew to be a man
I learned to love the virtues of sweet Sally MacLennane
I took the jeers and drank the beers and crawled back home at dawn
And ended up a barman in the morning

I played the pump and took the hump and watered whiskey down
I talked of whores and horses to the men who drank the brown
I heard them say that Jimmy's making money far away
And some people left for heaven without warning

We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him a song of times long gone
Though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
(Far away) sad to say I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away (far away)
I'd like to think of me returning when I can
To the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane

When Jimmy came back home he was surprised that they were gone
He asked me all the details of the train that they went on
Some people they are scared to croak but Jimmy drank until he choked
And he took the road for heaven in the morning

We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him a song of times long gone
Though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
(Far away) sad to say I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away (far away)
I'd like to think of me returning when I can
To the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane



Now, if that little tune doesn't make you want to pick up a pint of Guiness...

Tupac - Thug Passion

fallow 05-27-02 08:50 PM

Its isn't a country song...but could you possibly go wrong with something titled "The Beer Song" by They Might Be Giants?

ziggy 05-27-02 09:29 PM

damn, now I want to get sh|tty.

You are all condemned for not saying Jimmy Buffet: ""Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw."

Shame, shame, shame.

Kinks - "Alcohol"

Oh demon alcohol, sad memories I can't recall

Shame, shame, shame.

Although I agree, I think any Jimmy Buffett song is good to get pasted listening to. I know I do

"High Balls" by Guttermouth. Its a catchy punk song.

The greatest drinking song ever... "Home for a rest" by Spirit of the West (especially if you like fast Irish drinking songs).

you'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a month
I've been drunk since i left
these so-called vacations
will soon be my death
I'm so sick from the drink
I need home for a rest

we arrived in december and london was cold
so we stayed in the bars
along charing cross road
we never saw nothin' but brass taps and oak
kept a shine on the bar
with the sleeves of our coats

-chorus-

euston station the train journey north
in the buffet car we lurched back and forth
past odd crooked dykes
through yorkshire's green fields
we were flung into dance
as the train jigged and reeled

you'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a month
I've been drunk since i left
there so-called vacations
will soon be my death
I'm so sick from the drink
I need home for a rest
take me home....

by the light of the moon she'd drift through the streets
a rare old perfume so seductive and sweet
she'd tease us and flirt as the pubs all closed down
then walk us on home and deny us a round

-chorus-

the gas heater's empty, it's damp as a tomb
and the spirits we drank are now ghosts in the room
I'm knackered again, come on sleep take me soon
and don't lift up my head
'till the the twelve bells at noon

you'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a month
I've been drunk since i left
there so-called vacations
will soon be my death
I'm so sick from the drink
I need home for a rest
take me home....

Two depressing drinking songs:

God Loves a Drunk - Richard Thompson
Moonshiner - Uncle Tupelo

Penny Lane 05-29-02 10:44 PM

Um, also not country, but "Beer" by Reel Big Fish is a great drinking song.

shaun3000 05-30-02 12:59 AM

Wiskey River, by Willie Nelson

And Thunderball: It's Tom T. Hall, not Tom Hall. :)

I like beer,
it makes me a jolly good fellow...

shaggstheclown 05-30-02 12:44 PM

It don't matter what song is playing as long as I got an ice cold lager in my hand

hippochris 05-30-02 03:22 PM

Beer - Reel Big Fish

TeeSeeJay 05-31-02 12:00 PM

Not so country, but I think "I'm Gonna be (500 Miles)" by the Proclaimers is a good drinking song.

the aftermath 05-31-02 02:35 PM

Some completely non-country tracks :)

Busta Rhymes ft. P Diddy - Pass the Courvoisier
Chumbawumba - I get knocked down...

dglaser6 05-31-02 02:44 PM
