Drinking Song of the Week: The King is Gone by George Jones
Posted on August 16, 2013
Elvis Presley died today back in 1977. A sad day. Almost as sad as when your lover leaves you, as George Jones so perfectly captured in his 1988 hit “The King is Gone ( So are You). George passed away back in April and I like to think he and Elvis have found each other in the Great Beyond, snacking on peanut butter and banana sandwiches, sipping on whiskey and singing endless duets.
