What a sad time. Richie Havens, Bob Brozman and now George Jones all in the last few days.
Jack Blandiver posted "Beer Run", written by Garth Brooks. While it's not the same song, it does have a lot in common with Todd Snider's song "Beer Run", including the line "B -double E -double R -U -N".
When Todd sings it, he introduces it by saying, "I wrote this song, then a couple years later, Garth Brooks wrote it again."
