Classic Rewind: Tom T. Hall – ‘I Like Beer’

My great uncle passed away last week at age 90. He wasn’t a country music fan, but like Tom T. Hall, Uncle Bill liked his beer. Over the years, he repeatedly had asked all of us, that when he died, to please slip a cold one or two into his casket for his journey to the hereafter. It had been a running joke for years, but I still couldn’t help but be surprised when I arrived at the funeral parlor to pay my respects and saw a six-pack of Heineken at the foot of his casket. Later, after the Mass at the luncheon, we toasted his memory with a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Uncle Bill, this one’s for you:

    Great song
