Chuck Murphy - Who Drank My Beer (While I Was In The Rear)


I hate when this happens... Not much has changed since 1952.

Here is what Billboard had to say about it Jul 19, 1952: Pleasant ditty is given good pace by a spirited western featuring a honky tonk piano. Murphy half-talks half-sings the lyrics with proper dolefulness while the boys in teh band add a gang vocal in spots. Should do okay in tavern jukes.

The label shot of coral 61785 was issued in 1957
Billboard advert shows the 1st pressin 1952 issue number as coral 60800. Cheers I enjoyed it.
PS : Maybe you should stop going to the rear & wait for the chap behind you to go to the rear then stay in the bar & refill his glass?
