One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer

John Lee Hooker George Thorogood
So I go down the streets, people. Down to my good friend's house. I say "Look man. I'm outdoors, you know. Can I stay with you maybe a couple days?" He say "Let me go ask my wife." He come out the house, I could see in his face, I know it was "No"! He say "I don't know, man. She kinda funny, you know" I say, "I know! Ever'body funny. Now you funny, too!"
This is from Thorogood's long, spoken introduction -- and I just like the pithy pathos from a down and out guy, rejected by his last friend in the world, with nowhere left to turn for solace but to the bottle.
