Have a Drink on Me

Album: Back in Black (1980)
  • Whiskey, gin and brandy
    With a glass I'm pretty handy
    I'm trying to walk a straight line
    On sour mash and cheap wine
    So join me for a drink boys
    We're gonna make a big noise

    So don't worry about tomorrow
    Take it today
    Forget about the check
    We'll get hell to pay

    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me
    Yeah, have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me (on me)
    Come on

    Dizzy, drunk and fightin'
    On tequila white lightnin'
    My glass is getting shorter
    On whiskey, ice and water
    So come on and have a good time
    And get blinded out of your mind

    So don't worry about tomorrow
    Take it today
    Forget about the check
    We'll get hell to pay

    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me (on me)
    Get stoned

    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me (yeah)
    Have a drink on me,come on

    Oh
    Gonna roll around
    Gonna hit the ground
    Take another swing
    Have another drink
    Gonna drink it dry
    Gonna get me high
    Come on all the boys
    Make a noise

    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me
    Have a drink on me

  • Jeff from UsaAs I remember reading that have a drink on me was the time of grieving and mourning and having a drink on them in celebration of their life. But of course the lyrics seem to go way above and beyond that.
  • Phil from Montreal, QcAlthough it's one of my favorite tracks on the album, I always found it inconsiderate of the Young brothers to have included that song, praising drinking, after what happened to Bon Scott.
  • Eric from Camas, WaI like how during the verses the guitars play the same pattern all the way through, but the bass pattern does change. That's artistry.
  • Andrew from Kilcoy, AustraliaThe night of Bons death, the two Young brothers were messing around with the song when Bon with his drumming experience jumped on the kit and jammed along, after that he went out to the clubs and the two brothers never saw him again. It's ironic, considering the wy he died. R.I.P Bon.
  • Briar from Hazard, KyDecent song. Barley Scotch from Hayseed Dixie has stated in many interviews that this is one of his favorite Ac/Dc songs.
