God Loves a Drunk

Click for biggie smalls little toes on fire

"O God loves a drunk, the lowest of men
With the dogs in the street and the pigs in the pen
But a drunk's only trying to get free of his body
And soar like an eagle high up there in heaven
His shouts and his curses are just hymns and praises
To kick-start his mind now and then
O God loves a drunk, come raise up your glasses, amen"

Hae a listen, I heard it after Ralph Steadman recommended it on an old Inkstuds Podcast.
The tune was originally written by Richard Thompson, but I'm pretty into Norma Waterson's voice.

Cool!

I just read the poem.

It's interesting that the Buddha and the drunk have the same intention.

To free the spirit within and transcend to a higher place.
Although, the Buddha looks within in order to do this but the drunk must first look within the whiskey bottle!
