So here is the question. How come you came to write Drinking Days. Was it in the persona of someone else

Indeed, a lot of my songs are not descriptions of my own life, but attempts at portraying or assuming other (more interesting) lives. My friend Wranglin' Ron Coy said in the midst of a tale one time: "I wasn't even drinking . . . that much." He says lots of things that end up in songs of mine.
