#80 Have a Drink on Me (AC/DC)

Whiskey gin and brandy
With a glass I'm pretty handy
I'm tryin' to walk a straight line
On sour mash and cheap wine
So join me for a drink boys
We gonna make a big noise
So don't worry 'bout tomorrow
Take it today

#79 Take Your Whiskey Home (Van Halen)

Well, my baby, she don't want me around.
She said she's tired of watchin' me fall down.
She wants the good life, only the best.
But I like that bottle better than the rest.
And she said: I think that you're headed for a whole lot of trouble.

#78 Whiskey In The Jar (Metallica)

Now some men like the fishin' and some men like the fowlin'
And some men like ta hear, ta hear cannon ball a roarin'
Me I like sleepin' specially in my Molly's chamber
But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain yeah

truck driver gets himself airborne anyway with the help of a lawn chair and 42 helium-filled weather balloons. Airborne, as in 16,000 feet worth of airborne.

#73 Prayer for you (Texas)

All I see is the truth now, that's all I want you to know
That I'll never turn my back on you
And leave you out there on your own
I could never hide my feelings, I could never let you fall
And I want you to remember all the love that I've found

At her feet was a footloose man
You can't always get what you want

You're the best I never had

'Cause you got me, and baby I got you

#65 Sweet Caroline (Neil Diamond)

Where it began,
I can't begin to knowin'
But then I know it's growing strong

Reachin' out, touchin' me, touchin' you
