We were listening to a cd today, and a true country classic came on. I was singing along to it, and noticed my aunt nearly falling over laughing. At first I thought it was my terrible voice, but she informed me that she had never hear it before. "Wha???" says I. 'Twas true. She'd never heard it until today. I was gabberflasted. Bewildered. Thunderstruck. Aghast, even. Not to mention a bit horrified.

How can one have never heard a tune such as this one? Seriously. It's a classic. And it ain't heavy metal. But it's not really safe for work.

Please tell me that she's the only one that hasn't heard that tune...

One of my all time favorite songs. I could sing it word for word by the age of 10. Even WITH soap in my mouth......

Love it, sing it all the time.

Can't say that I've had the pleasure! But I've heard it now!

LOL!!! I do know it. Although I haven't heard it since the kicker bars in Houston!!

uh, sorry... I'm in the same group as your aunt.
It did rouse a few chuckles, though...

I love this song...even my kids know it! Of course, I did grow up in rodeo country.

I'm pretty sure that it's state law in Wyoming that you memorize those lyrics before you can even go to school! Classic!

LOL! Haven't heard it in quite a while. Thanks for helping get the morning started with a laugh.

I have a copy of Chris LeDoux doing a rendition of that here somewhere in my pile of mp3's :)

Know it??!! It was I-95 on the jukebox at the Airway, a bar we frequented every night after work for darts and beer. Eventually, I-95 became radio code at work if we were encountering less-than-courteous drivers.

It's been a long time since I heard it that I didn't recognize it at first.

I'll sit next to Jean... I've never heard it before. *grin*

That must've come out before I moved to Tulsa and discovered Country music. Catchy little tune.

Posted by: Jerry at April 12, 2007 06:22 PM

Never heard it before, but then I've had a fairly sedate life...sigh.

I always thought most people had more fun growing up than me....now I know for sure...

Posted by: Nancy at April 12, 2007 08:00 PM

OMFG! I haven't heard this in YEARS!!!!

Posted by: Mark at April 12, 2007 08:45 PM

Never heard it before. This is another song that won't be on the list for Mo's wedding! :-)

Posted by: h~ at April 12, 2007 09:29 PM

Posted by: Billy Budd at April 12, 2007 09:45 PM

Posted by: Graumagus at April 13, 2007 06:33 AM

I have never heard this song in my life. Holy crap that's funny! I notice my Mom said its not going on Mo's Playlist. Can't wait to blog what is... ;-)

Posted by: Bou at April 13, 2007 06:29 PM

Ugh, it won't let me hear it and I want to know what it is!

Priceless T1G. That brings me back to the days of Pappa's Honkey Tonk on Hwy 90 in Biloxi. I'm sure it is gone now. I remember two-steppin' to that one 20 + years ago.

Posted by: Biloxi at April 15, 2007 09:23 PM

Bou is mistaken, this was our High school's fight song, I'm sure of it....

Or perhaps it was just the one that was always playing under the bleechers.

Oldie but a goodie, heard it first in Germany at the NCO Club on Country Night.........1987ish.
Ahhhhh memories!

Posted by: Ray at April 16, 2007 11:11 PM

I've heard it plenty, although usually the bleeped version.

Posted by: Harvey at April 17, 2007 08:55 AM
