"C.C. Waterback" is a song recorded by American country music artists Merle Haggard and George Jones. 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.
The song 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 title of the song refers to a shot of Canadian Club whisky with a water chaser. While celebrating his new hit song in 1983 at a large Texas club, Merle Haggard bought a round of drinks for more than 5,000 fans in attendance, earning a spot in Guinness World Records that stood for decades.
