Bob Dylan on XM

This week's theme on Bob Dylan's radio show was "The world of Liquid Libation." I was hoping for at least one Amos Milburn song, but I didn't get one. Got John Lee Hooker's version of one instead. Here's the eclectic playlist:

George Zimmerman and the Thrills, I Ain’t Got no Money to Pay for this Drink
Electric Flag, Wine, Wine, Wine
Loretta Lynn, Don’t Come Home a-Drinkin’
Porter Waggoner, Daddy and the Wine
Mary Gauthier, I Drink
Charles Aznavour, I Drink (not the same song as the one above)
Jimmy Rogers, Sloppy Drunk
Lonnie the Cat, I Ain’t Drunk
Johnny Tyler and the Riders of the Rio Grande, It Ain’t Far to the Bar
Hank Williams, Jr., What’s on the Bar
The Clovers, One Mint Julep
The Andrews Sister, Rum and Coca-Cola
John Lee Hooker, One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer
Charlie Walker, Who will Buy the Wine?
Betty Hall Jones, Buddy Stay off that Wine
The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, Whiskey You’re the Devil

  3. Psalms9:19 PM

    Though I appreciate the inclusion of The Clover's, "One Mint Julip". And I realize that The Champs', "Tequila", was too mainline. But this list is crying for Hank and Hank Jr.'s, "There's A Tear In My Beer". Not to mention John Prine's, "They Oughta Name A Drink After You". Then too, I got this warm place in my heart for "Moonlight Cocktails".
