* TearJerker: And how. "Choices" is a heartrending tearjerker of a song about how we all must live with the consequences of the decisions we make in life, a sentiment that seems especially credible coming from a reformed hellraiser like George. The narrator of "If Drinkin' Don't Kill Me (Her Memory Will)" is on the verge of drinking himself to death after realizing that he will never overcome the pain associated with his ex's memory.
