“Bottle of wine, fruit of the vine
When you gonna let me get sober
Leave me alone, let me go home
Let me go home and start over”
The Fireballs, 1965
This was a Top Ten hit, and a seriously rockin’ sixties tune by the Fireballs …
Why did it come into my head? I don’t know. But underneath that catchy tune and rock guitar sound is a desperate story of addiction to alcohol. Weird to listen to music with that mix of message.
Not much to say today – other than to post that YEP – I’M STILL SOBER!
