The name of the song is "The All-American Redneck," by the Geezinslaws. I have it on an LP somewhere. Here's a sample of the sort of other material they do. These guys live in Austin, Texas. Sammy has a morning radio program. They're really funny.

BMI says ALL AMERICAN REDNECK was written by Robert E Segrest Jr and Greta Elise Shepherd.

Randy Howard sings ALL AMERICAN REDNECK on "The Best of Randy Howard."

There is a playable excerpt on this page, and the lyrics nearly agree with what was posted above:

…brand new black blue jeans.
With a bleached-blonde mama, she looks like a barroom queen.
He's got a beer-gut belly, and he walks tall and proud.
If you try to get smart with him, he'll punch you out.
He kicks ass, he pumps gas,
And drives a '65 T-Bird that that runs so fast,
He eats pool-hall chili…

The Geezinslaws did indeed record ALL AMERICAN REDNECK; it's on their album "If You Think I'm Crazy Now," which can be ordered from their web site. No lyrics or sound sample there, though.

The song with the following lyrics is definitely NOT All American Redneck -- it's called ALL-AMERICAN TRUCKER. I have a version of it and it sounds a lot like David Allan Coe to me - the only problem is, I can't find it on any of DAC's albums. As a matter of fact, I can't find it anywhere on the net. I've tried several Google searches, and even the best source of all: allmusic.com. No where.

I looked up the Geezinslaws on allmusic.com and their lyrics are cleaner than these, that's why I think it's Coe. He has an album called 18 X-Rated Songs, and others of that ilk, and he wrote most of those songs. He does a lot of "blue" material.

As for how to play it, I can't help you.

Lyrics to ALL-AMERICAN TRUCKER.

"Here he comes in his brand new, black, blue jeans,
With a bleached-blonde mama that looks like a bar-room queen.
He's got a beer gut belly he walks strong and proud.
And if you start any shit with him, he'll punch you out.

He kicks ass, he pumps gas, drives a 65 T-bird that runs so fast.
Eats pool-hall chili, drinks what you got on draft.
He's got a pick-up truck, he loves to fuck,
And if you need some pussy, he can fix you up.
He's an all-American trucker. He's got class.

Well, he just bought a CD-player stereo.
Got a dear from Sears from a salesman that he knows.
He's got all the latest country & western hits.
'Cause he thinks disco music is a bunch of shit. (And it is!)

He kicks ass, he pumps gas, drives a 65 T-bird that runs so fast.
Eats pool-hall chili, drinks what you got on draft.
He's got a pick-up truck, he loves to fuck,
And if you need some pussy, he can fix you up.
He's an all-American trucker. He's got class."

The original "All American Redneck" was without a doubt written and recorded first by Randy Howard. It can be found on his greatest hits on itunes or on some of his old LP's if your lucky enough to find one. One of the LP's is actually called "All American Redneck"

The song I heard goes like this


Here he comes in his brand new black blue jeans
with a beach blonde mama, she looks like a bar room queen
He's got a beer gut belly, and he walks tall and proud
and if you try to get smart with him, he'll punch you out!

He kicks ass
He pumps gas
He drives a '65 T-bird that runs so fast
He eats pool hall chili, drinks what you got on draft.
He's got a pickup truck, he love's to fuck
and if you need a woman he can fix you up
He's an all American redneck, he's got class.

Well he just bought a brand new electrophonic stereo
He got a deal at sears from a salesman that he knows
He's got all the latest country-western hits
'Cause he thinks disco music is a bunch of shit
and it is

He kicks ass
He smokes grass
He drives a '65 T-bird that runs so fast
He eats pool-hall chili, drinks what you got on draft
He's got a pickup truck, he loves to fuck
and if you need a woman he can fix you up
He's an all American redneck, he's got class.

He'll kick your ass!

My dears, the behavior that song is describing is not that of a true redneck. That is the behavior of white trash, which is down the Great Chain of Being from redneck.

I once read a book by a football player from Georgia who explained the difference. He had gone into partnership in a restaurant with a guy. The guy grew unhappy, left town, and took the burners from the grills with him so that the football player could not keep going. The football player said [I paraphrase].

"I'm a redneck. But he took the grills with him, and he's white trash."
