Firehawkordy,

 

did he play, "I like beer!", by Tom T. Hall? Great song:

 

I LIKE BEER

 

In some of my songs i have casually mentioned

The fact that i like to drink beer

This little song is more to the point

Roll out the barrel and lend me your ears

 

(Chorus:)

I like beer. it makes me a jolly good fellow

I like beer. it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (makes him feel mellow)

Whiskey's too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear

This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact i like beer

(he likes beer)

 

My wife often frowns when we're out on the town

And i'm wearing a suit and a tie

She's sipping vermouth and she thinks i'm uncouth

When i yell as the waiter goes by

 

(Chorus)

 

Last night i dreamed that i passed from the scene

And i went to a place so sublime

Aw, the water was clear and tasted like beer

Then they turned it all into wine

 

I like beer. it makes me a jolly good fellow

I like beer. it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (makes him feel mellow)

Whiskey's too rough, champagne costs too much, and vodka puts my mouth in gear

Aw, this little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact i love beer

(yes, he likes beer)

 

 

Sigh......well, I used to, anyway. I quit drinking almost 4 years ago, but boy, does this old Chief have some memories!!!!

 

Later, shipmates.

Chief,

Yes he did play that one, it's an old favorite of mine. The first time I heard it was my jr. year in high school. My first girlfriends mother worked for Tom T. Hall, but it was before we met, even so when I hear that song I think of her.

Also played last sunday was the "Bertha Butt Boogie", "I'm Looking Over My Dead Dog Rover", "We Like Hockey".

 

My wife and kids think I've completely lost it when I listen to the Dr. Different brands of humor I guess.

 

And to Fates I leave a crate of my best whiskey and a.........

My fondest memory of the good Doctors show has got to be "FishHeads". Great stuff he has aired over the years. Thanx for the link.
