”Jack Daniels If You Please” - David Allan Coe

If a dictionary were to define a term like “outlaw country” by using visual aids, it would use a photo of David Allan Coe to advance that aim. Coe was most popular during the 1970s and 1980s, and much of his material consists of lyrics so offensive they cannot be repeated here. However, he has also recorded his fair share of more wholesome weepers, such as “Jack Daniels If You Please.”

Coe sings that the whiskey is “the only friend there has ever been that didn’t do me wrong,” and asks it to “kill this pain that’s driving me insane since my baby’s gone.” The song’s lyrics touch on a common theme in country music — the power of liquor to dull heartache and offer friendship when everyone else has fallen by the wayside.
