Thread Name: Trad. American Drinking Songs?
Subject: RE: Trad. American Drinking Songs?
Maybe not in the Trad. category, but George Jone's "White Lightnin'" - "Show Me the Way To Go Home" - and it seems that Uncle Dave Macon had some drinking songs, but the titles escape me momentarily.

Are drinking songs about drinking -- or are they the sentimental, easily sung songs that people bawl forth in sloshy three-part harmony when they are drinking ???
