"C.C. Waterback" is a song recorded by American country music artists Merle Haggard and George Jones as a duet. It was released in December 1982 as the second single from the album A Taste of Yesterday's Wine. The song reached #10 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. The song was written by Haggard and tells the story of a wild party "at the Jones' place" and the hangover that followed. At one point Merle laments that the woman he brought to the party "wound up in Jones' bed and I wound up on the floor." The track also features a New Orleans horn section. The song was appropriate for both singers, considering that Jones was engulfed in a years long drug abyss and Haggard was about to fall headlong into one.
