SouthernCelt Lyr/Tune Req: The Big One (Confederate Railroad) (15) RE: Lyr/Tune Req: Day That Daddy Dropped the Big One 08 Aug 07


Yes, I imagine ole Ray liked it. I knew about it only because my son had it on an album by Conf RR and insisted I listen to it. Later I queried the internet until I found the lyrics.   What's a bit funny about it is that I know several people in Horn Lake, MS and I bet they've always been mystified why Conf. RR chose their little town for such a coarse novelty song. Horn Lake is probably populated now by mostly middle class urban professionals who work in Memphis nearby and then escape the big city for home.

As for Ray Stevens, he has so many funny songs I can't name just one or two favorites. One of his I always thought would be a bit questionable to women was "It's Me Again Margaret" about a crazy stalker taken with a woman named Margaret, so taken that he calls her from the court house while he's being arraigned on charges. One of my internet friends, who lives in the Horn Lake area (nearby town) is named Margaret. I have to resist the temptation to start off my e-mails with "It's me again Margaret." I'm not sure if she'd get it and if she did, I'm not sure how she'd take it. :-|?
