Subject: RE: Trad. American Drinking Songs?
How about a barbershop song?

"Saloon", "Saloon", "Saloon".
It runs through my head like a tune.
I don't like cafe and I hate cabaret, but just mention "saloon" and my cares fade away.
For it brings back a fond recollection
Of a little old low-ceilinged room
With a bar and a rail and a foam-bedecked pail...
"Saloon", "Saloon", "Saloon".

From the wonderful Yale Songbook, if I remember correctly.
