8 Weeks In A Bar Room

Ramblin' Red Bailey - Eight Weeks In A Bar Room

So here's a lightly mangled copy of Eight Weeks In A Bar Room, Ramblin' Red Bailey's woozy ode to a bout with hardcore alcoholism triggered by, what else, the departure of the woman he loved. I first heard the song, like, I assume, most of the people who know it, on the celebrated twisted country LP comp God Less America.

G- the NARCO label, oif course. By the time he got to describing "the snakes o the floor", I was kneecaps-deep in L-U-V with Ramblin Red. Thanks for sharin'!
