Fun story to go with this one! PRS Forum member @danktat posted a thread on May 17 titled "Friday Night Drinking Thread". I was the first to respond and my words were "Giddy-up with a whisky cup!" which I typed based on the picture, and an old fiends penchant for saying "Giddy-Up" when we are drinking. The moment I hit the "Post Reply" button, I said to myself, wow, that's a song. Twenty minutes or so later, I had composed 95% of the lyrics. And so hear it is!!! @danktat was kind enough to let me use the photo he had posted in that thread (which at the moment appears to be missing) for the artwork of the song. Here is a link to the Bandcamp page where it can be listened to if you so desire - Giddy-Up With A Whiskey Cup. It will be available on most major digital platforms in the next 24 - 72 hours but that link lets you listen to it as much as you like without any of the streaming services or subscriptions.

Would love to hear what y'all think!! Hoorman Gitfiddle (594 HBII) is the finger pickin' and slide lead guitar. Wolfy MooNAMM (PS CU24) debuts in his first recording as the rhythm. MM Stingray on bass. Assorted live percussion and Addictive Drum loops. Some clown on vocals!

Sips Ahoy!!!

Another long day in the grind
Can make us all feel less than fine
And when I need to calm my nerves
Well it's the least that I deserve

And so I reach for my fine drink
Try to escape this world and think
Just keep on sippin' round and round
Until my solace I have found

Giddy-up with a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to drink up
Chase away sorrows of today
I worked hard now it's time to play

Giddy-up in a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to drink up
Medicate my eyes to see
A world where liquor I know I need

My Momma says I should not drink
Worries I'll end up in the clink
My daddy he had set the pace
To the bottom of the hill two drunks would race

But that don't stop me from good times
Just wear a smile and shoot for kind
Let's raise em up and tip a few
Right here right now I wanna' drink with you

Giddy-up with a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to drink up
Kill the sorrows of today
We work so hard come on let's play

Giddy-up with a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to drink up
Medicate thine eyes to see
A world where liquors what we all need

Puritans listenin' to this song
It will be over in not to long
Believe the offense will not last
And if it does raise your shot glass

Let's toss one for the skit of it
Might be surprised on what you git
You may enjoy enough to join
Us in our revelry sips ahoy oy oy oy

Giddy-up with a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to drink up
Sailin' through the sorrows of today
I worked so hard now it's time to play

Giddy-up with a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to drink up
Medicate my eyes to see
A world where liquor I surely need

Giddy-up with a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to drink up
Giddy-up with a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to drink up
Giddy-up with a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to drink up
Giddy-up with a whiskey cup
Line up the shots time to get drunk
