    And who could forget the original Ray Wylie Hubbard standard?

    "He was born in Oklahoma
    And his wife's name is Betty Lou Thelma Liz
    He's not responsible for what he's doing
    His mother made him what he is

    CHORUS:

    And it's up against the wall, redneck mother
    Mother who has raised her son so well
    He's 34 and drinkin' in some honky tonk
    Kickin' hippies' asses and raisin' hell.

    Sure does like his Falstaff Beer
    He likes to chase it down with that Wild Turkey Liquor
    He's got a '57 GMC pickup truck
    Got a gun rack
    "A Goat Roper needs love too" sticker

    (CHORUS)

    M is for the mud flaps she gave me for my pickup truck
    O is for the oil I put on my hair
    T is for T-Bird
    H is for Haggard
    E is for Eggs
    R is for Redneck

    (Chorus)"

    I do live in Kansas after all.

    Hey, jc.

    I'd never heard of Ray, until a couple of weeks ago. I'll have to seek some of his older work out.

    Thanks for the sympathy response, buddy.

    I can't get enough of his latest release -- been spinning it at home and in the car.

    Cheers,

    Bill

    Hey, jrhymeammo.

    I don't want to mislead you, but Tom Waits' music is much better imho than ol' Ray's. Nevertheless, if you combined some of Waits' simpler tunes with Cash and with Dowd, I think you'd have a fairly accurate idea of what he's like.

    I think you might like it.
