The song was recorded by a singer named Johnny Russell sometime in the late 60's. It is still available on a couple of different collections, one called REDNECK COUNTRY and another called something like COUNTRY'S GREATEST DRINKING SONGS, to name two.

Here are the lyrics, chords, and ABC, Susan. Enjoy!

RED NECKS, WHITE SOCKS, AND BLUE RIBBON BEER
Words & Music by Chuck Neese, Bob McDill and Wayland Holyfield
. As recorded by Johnny Russell, 1973.

© 1973 PolyGram Int'l Publishing, Inc. and Songs of PolyGram Int'l Inc.

The [F]barmaid if mad 'cause some [Bb]guy made a pass[F].
The juke box is playin' "There Stands the [C7]Glass"
And the [F]cigarette smoke kinda hangs[Bb] in the air.[F]
Rednecks, white socks and [C7]Blue Ribbon [F]beer.

A cowboy is cussin' the [Bb]pinball machine.[F]
A drunk at the bar is gettin' noisy and [C7]mean.
And some [F]guy on the phone says "I'll [Bb]be home soon [F]dear."
Rednecks, white socks and [C7]Blue Ribbon [F]beer.

CHORUS:
No [C7]we don't fit in with that [Bb]white collar crowd.[F]
We're a [C7]little too rowdy and a [Bb]little too [F]loud,
But there's no place that I'd rather [Bb]be than right [F]here
With my red neck, white socks, and [C7]Blue Ribbon [F]beer.

The semis are passing on the [Bb]highway outside.[F]
The four-thirty crowd is about to arrive.[C7]
The [F]sun's going down and we'll [Bb]all soon be [F]here.
Rednecks, which socks and [C7]Blue Ribbon [F]beer.

Hey now Linnie!!! Why I'll have you know there ain't nothin' out there except bottled water to compare with Pabst Blue Ribbon, especially since Wiedemann's went belly up. I mean the stuff is water with just a hint of hops and some fizz and nowadays it's cheaper than bottled water too. At least it doesn't have that soapy flavor that Budweiser adds to their brew! And what a ad jingle:

What'll you have?
Pabst Blue Ribbon!
Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer.

Okay, so it ain't as good as Carling's ditty was, but it was just about as creative:

Hey Mabel!
Black Label!
Carling's Black Label Beer.

But of course Carling's lent itself to far better rip-offs:

Hey Mabel!
Get off the table!
The quarter's for the beer.

Ah yes, the world of bad beer and worse jingles! Hudepohl, Iron City, Fall City, P.O.C., Wiedemann's,......so many and some long gone. Gimmee a PBR to cry into....the salt will help it foam up a bit.

'Spaw, I can still get Iron City ("the beer drinker's beer") if you want some. Old Frothingslosh had the best ads, you must admit. "The beer so light, the foam's on the bottom" On the television ads they'd show an empy pilsner glass, a hand would come into view and start to pour in the usual mnner when suddenly the foam would come out of the bottle and thunk to the bottom of the glass...and this before computer generation. Now if somebody could get me some Duquesne ("you don't have a Doo-Kez-Nee? Then pour me a Duck!"), my day would be complete.

LOL! 'Spaw, I can tell you've sampled quite a few of those "good ol' boy" beers!

Frankly, if I didn't know for a fact where I grew up, I wouldn't believe I was a Texan--I really don't like the taste of any beer. Even Mogen David is preferable. Hell, even Ripple is preferable. (Mad Dog 20/20 may be debatable, though.)

Anyhow, there's always Lone Star! (choke....gasp....retch....cough.....)

I'm fromMilwaukee, and I oughta know

It's draft brewed Blatz beer, wherever you go

Smoother, and fresher, less filling, that's clear

Blatz is Milwaukee's finest beer

And, speaking of Ripple, I had a philosphy professor once who offered to treat the class to a wine and cheese party at the end of the semester. He said he was going to serve Ripple and Velveeta. The sad part was that none of the teenie boppers got the joke.

Hey, Susan, where'd you get that name? It comes from "Overheard On a Saltmarsh" by HH Monro, does it not? It has always been one of my favorite poems. The poem actually came up once before on Mudcat, and I posted it for someone who was looking for it. Was that you?
Just wondering,

Usually 35 to 50 cents for a quart bottle. If it hit .75 we thought we were being ripped off.
