Song History
Admin Note: the main lyrics listed are what's in the booklet that came with the album. They are a bit different from what is sung on the vocal take used for the final version. As we consistently use official lyrics for the main lyrics section, we will here as well. Actual sung lyrics will be noted in the song write up when it is complete.

Drunken Soldier is the second-longest studio track ever released by the band, coming in at 9 minutes and 47 seconds, only 20 second shorter than Bartender.

In 2012 Dave mentioned in an interview with Rodrigo Simas of DMBrasil that the idea of this song originated prior to the Stand Up album and that takes were done both during the recording of Stand Up with Mark Batson and Big Whiskey with Rob Cavallo.
