Great Drinking Songs (3)

Well, I'm not sure that this is a great drinking song, as such - not in the rollicking singalong ("And let's have another one while we're at it!") sense. But it does at least mention booze, and it is a damn fine, gruff, bluesy song. This is He Got All The Whiskey, from the wonderful - though largely unknown - British singer-songwriter, John Martyn, and his band. This is well-buried on YouTube; I only happened upon it at all because this version has the lovely Eddi Reader on backing vocals (and it's on about the 4th or 5th page of search results for her).
