Downshift, do you know the story behind that song?
If not, here goes. Vern Gosdin and George Jones were on tour together. They boarded a private plane at 8 in the morning and both fixed a vodka and orange juice. Vern claims he looked at George and said something to the effect.."look at us, it's only 8 in the morning and we're already drinking."
I think it was George who said, I'll bet you $1000 I can quit drinking, then just a couple minutes later looked at Vern and said frick it, it's only $1000 and took a drink.
Then Vern said "we must've been drunk when we said we'd stop drinking." They sat there and wrote the song...
