    Like your arrangement.

    The words to Whiskey Before Breakfast were written (fairly recently) by Carolina musician Mike Cross, who said, "I always thought the tune oughta have some words to it."

    Cross, a very active and prolific musician, songwriter and performer, has been laid low by what he describes as a "tick-borne disease" (perhaps Lyme disease?), according to his website.

    Here is Cross performing Whiskey Before Breakfast, fiddle and vocals.

    Off topic or not, anybody that can sing and play fiddle at once, and do it so well, is tops in my book.

    Great! Thank you, very much. I like the version of Mike Cross! I don't that the Words came from Mike Cross. I thought there were older!

    Tune's been around a long time, Cross's words are pretty new.
