Tall timber time! My two favorite Dale Watson songs. When I go out on a road trip, the first two nights I request this song and the #1 song (which you'll see tomorrow, on Dale's birthday). And hey, they both involve drinking! Imagine a country song about drinking! #2: I Hate to Drink Alone I think I'm drinking myself crazy I'll take you with me when I go Yeah, that's a line. One of the funny things about seeing Dale do this live is his explanation for the drawn-out "hate" when he sings the title. "I'm southern, and in the south, hate is an eight-syllable word!" (He does have a point, y'all.) And the song itself is fi-e-i-i-fi-e-i-i-fine on its own (without the southern commentary). It's about a man who misses an ex-lover and knows drinking by himself is dangerous and lonely, so "I keep your memory on my mind and near to me." I love this song, and Dale always knows he has to do it one night when I'm on a road trip. I Hate to Drink Alone Written by Dale Watson From El Rancho Azul, 2013 Have a drink with Dale!

Women and booze. That's a country staple.

Great choice I never really liked to drink alone either.
