    I consider this to be one of the greatest country music songs of all time! Dealing with the pathos of an alcoholic husband in a humorous manner that drives its message home sweetly is a tough job to pull off! I never tire of this song unlike the sappy Kenny Rogers hits from the 1970’s…

    I like this song too, though maybe not as much as Rick does.

    It also spawned a pretty good “answer” song in Susan Peters` single “Why’d I Hire a Wino to Decorate Your Home”
