Well Tuesday has come and gone, and for those of us who need a chuckle to get us through a long week, even at the expense of Ol’ J.C., I offer up the Beat Farmers‘ quite humorous tune: “Are You Drinkin’ With Me Jesus?”. The Beat Farmers formed in San Diego, California in 1983. They were a cult favorite until their untimely demise in 1995, when their charismatic lead singer and band leader Country Dick Montana had a massive heart attack and up & died at a bar in Whistler, British Columbia.
But they left behind some gems, including this song, which starts:
Do you nestle by my barstool
Makin’ me so calm within
Have you touched me with your warmness
Or have I wet myself again?
Good stuff. Sacrilege? Blasphemy? Hogwash! This song reaches out to J.C . in a way that would make Mel Gibson proud.
