Whiskey in the Well
Look, it's Coffin Ed and Gravedigger Jones. Nah, not really.
I've noticed an unintentional god'n'gospel-type theme running through the last few posts. Nope, I haven't been converted. Sometimes things just turn out that way. So I'm gonna take us into the weekend with a final song about a church service gone joyously off track.
Wynonie Harris is, well, he's just about the greatest thing since rye whiskey, aint he? If you don't have a little Wynonie in yr music collection, you need to remedy that situation. A blues shouter and stylist extraordinaire, Wynonie swings his ribald tales of booze, broads, and bawdiness with unparalleled joy. It's all about gettin' the action, and gettin' the party. And whether the party's in your pants, your house, or your bottle(or all three), Wynonie's your man. Fella knows about sinnin'.
And, speaking of sinning, Wynonie wants to tell you about how a church meetin' can be improved by tossin' a little something in the water supply. He also wants you to know how much he likes pudding. And, for god's sake, don't take his whiskey away. Start your weekend right with these fine selections.
