Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

The weeks are flying past at the moment…it doesn’t seem like a week since the last Musician Of The Week award, but it is, so here’s a new Musician Of The Week…Dean Martin! And the feature song is “Little Ole Wine Drinker, Me”.

I’m prayin’ for a rain in California
So the grapes can grow and they can make more wine
And I’m sitting in a honky in Chicago
With a broken heart and a woman on my mind.

I’ll ask the man behind the bar for the jukebox
And the music takes me back to Tennessee
And they ask “who’s the fool in the corner, cryin'”
I’ll say, “a little ole wine drinker, me”.

I came here last week from down in Nashville
‘Cause my baby left for Florida on a train
I thought I’d get a job and just forget her
But in Chicago a broken heart is still the same.

I’ll ask the man behind the bar for the jukebox
And the music takes me back to Tennessee
When they ask “who’s the fool in the corner, cryin’?”
I’ll say, “a little ole wine drinker, me”.
I’ll say, “a little ole wine drinker, me”.
