Subject: RE: Copperhead Road - explanation of line
Not much difference to what is said, but I'll say it anyhoo....

Just shot a coat of primer -- Only did enough to get it able to be driven without looking like Roscoe P. Coltrain -- then he looked inside... basically I think that the interior of the car was completely secondary to the purpose of the car, basically that it was bought based on the potential engine and heavy duty chassis, and who gave a dang about the inside of it... basically, refers to it being an afterthought after he already purchased it...

(When I perform the song, by the way, I always change the "Johnson County" line to a local county name, one that is a tad bit backwoods... always gets a great response... Right along with "Sweet Home Albert County / Where the moonshine burns so blue / Sweet Home Albert County / The RCMP are looking for you!".. but I digress)
