Happy old drinking song by Sticks McGee. I first heard it by Sam, 'Lightning' Hopkins. Played on cigar box mandolin.

Have a little wine and some fun. But take it easy! Be safe. Be kind.

Idea for the song came from Rope Walker's good and recent drinking song.

Allergy joke shamelessly stolen from the Anonymous Pick.

Yup, Rope.  Things can turn to chit in a hurry.

Album title. “Nothing happens, nothing happens. BOOM!”

Thanks, Rick.  Yup, wine is sneaky.  Nothing happens, nothing happens.  BOOM!

That’s a heck of an allergy. No cracklen Rosie for you. That’s a tough song to play and sing to at the same time. Well done Uncle! I can’t drink wine either, I end up climbing trees and other crazy things. A beer’s cheers to a fine performance though.

Ha!  Good comment, Bob.  I noticed you had not been around much and I hope that means you are having motorcycle fun and other fun.   Good to hear from you.

Nice fun song Unc J.  I think the blooper adds a bit more "potency" to it.  Nice mando too! Cheers!!

Thanks, Kale and Doug.  Just a fun little song.

Interesting song Uncle John! Another new one to me. Good form as usual and very real!
