"Whiskey's too rough, Champagne costs too much, Vodka puts my mouth in gear. I hope this refrain, Will help me explain, As a matter of fact, I like beer." - Tom T. Hall
Whiskey’s too rough, champagne costs too much, and vodka puts his mouth in gear, but as he explains on this Top 5 single from 1975’s ‘Faster Horses’ album, Tom T. Hall likes beer. A bold, anti-populist stance, to be sure, especially back then, but ‘The Storyteller,’ as Hall is known, sticks his neck out for the beverage that helps him unwind and makes him feel mellow.
