I remember finishing this song very late one night (early in the morning) back in my room at the Metropolitan hotel in Toronto after a solo show at the Dakota tavern. The staff at the Dakota are second to none and I was suicidally overserved before stumbling up the stairs and outside into the unforgiving glow of god's flashlight. 

Trashed Vampire. 

By the time I got back into my hotel room it was too late to go to bed so I put the coffee on and sat up with my guitar....until I had to go back to work. 

I knew I had a problem and after 30 years I was beginning to sense that either the affair would have to end.....or I would. 

The longest relationship of my life would soon be over and like a lover refusing to let go, I let loose with this ode to my two oldest friends. 

I laugh every time I sing it. I have no idea why...

lyrics

I'm a hard working man 
I am my father's son 
If it wasn't for the liquor 
I'd get a lot more done 
U can take your gin and tonic 
U can Take your Coke and Rum 
But I'll drink Red Wine and Whiskey 
til the rising of the Sun 

Red Wine and Whiskey 
Can lead a Saint to Sin 
Getting hard to draw the line 
Look at the state I'm in 
If you're looking for some trouble 
I always got the time 
If u just bring along a bottle of 
Good Whiskey or Red Wine 

Here's to all the girls who tried 
To build a better man 
And all the soldiers who have died 
Back in afghanistan 
To the million tears my mother cried 
Coz she don't understand 
Why i'd rather die of good red wine 
With a whiskey In my hand 

Red Wine and Whiskey 
Can lead a Saint to Sin 
Its getting hard to draw the line 
Look at the state I'm in 
If you're looking for some trouble 
I always got the time 
If u just bring along a bottle of 
Good Whiskey or Red Wine 

So crack another bottle 
Raise another glass 
Sling me one more shooter 
Before i kick your ass 
A dry life aint worth living 
The desert grants no Ease 
So I'll sink into the Ocean 
And drink the 7 Seas 

Red Wine and Whiskey 
Can lead a Saint to Sin 
Getting hard to draw the line 
Look at the state I'm in 
If you're looking for some trouble 
I always got the time 
If u just bring along a bottle of 
Good Whiskey or Red Wine
