Rednecks Lyrics

Last night I saw Lester Maddox on a TV show
With some smart-ass New York jew
The jew laughed at Lester Maddox
And the audience laughed at Lester Maddox too
Well he may be a fool, but he's our fool
If they think they're better than him they're wrong
So I went to the park and I took some paper along
And that's where I made this song

We talk real funny down here
We drink to much, we laugh too loud
We're too dumb to make it in no northern town
We're keeping the niggers down

We got no-necked oil men from Texas
Good Ol' Boys from Tennessee
College men from LSU
Went in dumb, come out dumb too
Hustling around Atlanta in their alligator shoes
Getting drunk every weekend at the barbecues
And keeping the niggers down

We're rednecks, we're rednecks
We don't know our ass from a hole in the ground
We're rednecks, we're rednecks
We're keeping the niggers down

Now your nothern nigger's a "negro"
You see, he's got his dignity
But down here we're too ignorant to realize
The north has set the nigger free

Yes, he's free to be put in a cage in Harlem in New York City
And he's free to be put in a cage in the South Side of Chicago and the West Side
And he's free to be put in a cage in Hough in Cleveland
And he's free to be put in a cage in East St Louis
And he's free to be put in a cage in the Fillmore San Fransisco
And he's free to be put in a cage in the Roxbury in Boston
They're gatherin' them up for miles around
Keeping the niggers down

We're rednecks, we're rednecks
We don't know our ass from a hole in the ground
We're rednecks, we're rednecks
We're keeping the niggers down
