Redneck Shorthaired White-Legg

Story Behind The Song

Having been born and raised on a cotton farm near Lubbock, Harry grew up working all summer in blue jeans and getting a tan only from the waist up. Nothing looked more ridiculous than a bunch of country boys in a public swimming pool or pond - tan from the waist or neck up, and lily white from the waist down. Thus the the idea for this song.

Lyrics

REDNECK SHORTHAIRED WHITE LEGGED GOOD OLD BOY

His hair wouldn't touch his ears if he combed it straight down
And you better duck if your ever see him frown
He's got a danged good tan but it stops right below his neck
Worst word his mother ever heard him say is heck

He's a REDNECK SHORTHAIRED WHITE LEGGED GOOD OLD BOY
Ever' redneck mother and daddy's pride and joy
He's a hell raiser but he'll make one hell of a man
'cause he's a REDNECK SHORTHAIRED WHITE LEGGED GOOD OLD BOY

Now he's gonna join the Army where he'll finish his GED
For concerts in the park he likes beer with Velveeta cheese
He's a chip kicking two stepping girl chousing son of a gun
But he'll do like his daddy and only give his heart to one

He's a REDNECK SHORTHAIRED WHITE LEGGED GOOD OLD BOY
Ever' redneck mother and daddy's pride and joy
He's a hell raiser but he'll make one hell of a man
'cause he's a REDNECK SHORTHAIRED WHITE LEGGED GOOD OLD BOY

HARMONICA

BRIDGE
But if you're a single young lady
And your looking for true romance
And you've tried so hard but can't find it
Well, Honey! Give this boy a chance...

'cause he's a REDNECK SHORTHAIRED WHITE LEGGED GOOD OLD BOY
Ever' redneck mother and daddy's pride and joy
He's a hell raiser but he'll make one hell of a man
'cause he's a REDNECK SHORTHAIRED WHITE LEGGED GOOD OLD BOY
He's a REDNECK SHORTHAIRED WHITE LEGGED GOOD OLD BOY
