Need a Good Chuckle?

One thing I love about country music is that it's always been able to poke fun not only at itself but also at serious life situations. Country music finds humor in the everyday experiences many of us face, often adding a down-home or redneck spin to

  • unfortunate looking offspring
  • dating, breakups, and unhappy marriages
  • religious overenthusiasm
  • sexuality
  • and becoming comfortable with technology.

Perhaps you can identify or maybe you just need a good laugh. If so, then make yourself a playlist of funny country songs. We have a long list to start you out.

1. "Ticks" by Brad Paisley

Well, this is one helluva pickup line. A country fella takes a liking to a fine-looking woman in a local bar. He'd sure like to see the other half of her butterfly tramp stamp, so he makes his move:

...I'd like to see you out in the moonlight
I'd like to kiss you way back in the sticks
I'd like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
And I'd like to check you for ticks.

It's a safety thing. You never know where those ticks might decide to burrow.

2. "Trashy Women" by Confederate Railroad

When it comes to women, some men like 'em classy while other men like 'em trashy. The guy in this memorable 1993 country song belongs to the latter set.

He seeks a gal who looks more like a cocktail waitress than a debutante: too much makeup, clothes too tight, and as tacky as he is:

I like 'em sweet, I like 'em with a heart of gold
Yeah, and I like 'em brassy, I like 'em brazen and bold
Well, they say that opposites attract; well I don't agree
I want a woman just as tacky as me
Yeah, I like my women just a little on the trashy side.

3. "You're the Reason Our Kids Are Ugly" by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty

This 1978 song is a hoot. Two old lovebirds are stuck with each other and throw major shade on their partner for the miseries of life: lack of money, losing their good looks, and then there's the ugly children they must share. At least they have each other.

And you're the reason our kids are ugly, little darlin'
Ah, but looks ain't everythin' and money ain't everythin'
But I love you just the same.

4. "No Trash In My Trailer" by Colt Ford (featuring George Jones)

The guy in this 2008 ditty wants you to know that there's a country mile of difference between redneck and just plain ole trash, and he don't allow no trash in his double wide mobile home. Yessirree, he may have a motor hangin' from a tree. He may spend his time mud boggin'. But he's ain't ashamed of who he is.

'Cause there ain't no trash in my trailer.
Though you might find an empty can of beer
No there ain't been no trash in my trailer, oh no
Since the day I threw you outta here,

Whether you admit it or not, everybody has at least one of these country cousins hiding somewhere in their family.  Don't you go denying it.

5. "I’m Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home" by David Frizzell

If you've never heard this song, you need to stop and listen to it now. In this 1982 country tune, a man's long-suffering wife is tired of having him come home drunk, so she's come up with a desperate solution. She'll hire a hardcore alcoholic as their interior decorator so there's no reason for her husband to stay out late carousing.

She said: "I'm gonna' hire a wino to decorate our home,
So you'll feel more at ease here, and you won't have to roam.
We'll take out the dining room table, and put a bar along that wall.
And a neon sign, to point the way, to our bathroom down the hall.

6. "I Pray for You" by Jaron and The Long Road to Love

If you like dark humor, then you'll find this 2010 country ditty a doozy. After the protagonist—that's the main character fella—gets his heart shredded, he goes to church.

However, when the preacher man encourages him to pray for those who have done him wrong, he doesn't find Jesus and warm, fuzzy forgiveness in the well-intentioned advice. Instead, he has his own interpretation of the Bible man's message:

I pray your brakes go out running down a hill
I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill
And knocks you in the head like I'd like to
I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls
I pray you're flying high when your engine stalls
I pray all your dreams never come true
Just know wherever you are honey, I pray for you.

7. "She Only B*tches When She Breathes" by Freddie B

Don't feel sorry for the bitter dude in this humorous 2011 country song. He laments that after he and his wife tied the knot, she did a 180-degree change. She spends all of his money, isn't as doting as she once was, and now he doesn't get enough bedroom time. (If he's honest with himself, he'd probably confess that he's changed a little, too.)

Looks like these two won't make it through the honeymoon years:

Yea this circle of trust is like a band of thieves
She stole my heart and then my self esteem
I'll have to sum it up this way:
She could turn a straight man gay
She only b*tches when she breathes.

8. "I Think She Only Loves Me for My Willie" by Paul Overstreet

When you saw the title, I bet your mind totally went to the gutter on this one, but this 2014 song is not about that willie. It humorously refers to Willie Nelson.

A woman falls in love with a singer who does his best to imitate the classics of Willie Nelson and other country legends. She first became smitten with him for the way he sang Willie Nelson's "Whiskey River" in a honky tonk outside of Austin. Since then, he has suspected that his spot-on musical impression of the red headed stranger is the real reason she sticks with him:

But I think she only loves me for my Willie
Something about my Willie turns her on
It’s not all that extraordinary really
But it’s better than my Haggard and my Jones.

9. "When You're Screwin' Other Women (Think of Me)" by Doyle and Debbie

When your marriage has gone this far south, you're either divorced or you will be soon. The wife in this 2011 country song is well aware that her man is cheating. He picks up women in bars and doesn't even waste the cost of a hotel. She asks him one trashy, bittersweet favor, however: at least while he's messing around, can he at least pretend that they're her?

10. "Queen of My Double Wide Trailer" by Sammy Kershaw

This 1993 song is all about possessive and forgiving love, redneck style. A backwoods country boy meets the farm girl of his dreams down at the local restaurant and falls head over boots for her over as they eat their chicken fried steaks. What he doesn't know is that she's the cheating kind.

So I made her the queen of my double wide trailer
With the polyester curtains and the redwood deck
Now she's run off and I've gotta trail her
Dang her black heart and her pretty red neck.

If you enjoy songs about rednecks, why not make yourself a playlist of Redneck Anthems?

11. "With My Shirt On" by John Michael Montgomery

Usually it's the ladies who feel self-conscious about their bodies. But in this 2008 country song, an aging husband realizes he's developed a "dad bod" and makes a special request of his wife:

Yeah, you know forty sure has come fast
And my metabolism is gettin' slow
So tonight, can I make love with my shirt on?

What do you bring to your relationship?  Other than love and affection, you probably help take care of some practical chores.  Your partner would miss that if you broke up.

12. "Who's Gonna Mow Your Grass?" by Buck Owens

No joke. This 1969 song was a number one country hit. Trying to avert a break up, a husband asks his wife both practical and whimsical questions about how she'll get by with him no longer around. Perhaps she can learn to mow her own grass.

13. "Billy's Got His Beer Goggles On" by Neal McCoy

Poor Billy got dumped by his girlfriend, so in this country tune from 2005, he does what any self-respecting guy does and heads to the local beer joint. There, he tries to forget his troubles by getting liquored up real good:

He's on the dance floor yelling 'Freebird'
Singing off pitch but he knows every word
Grabs him another girl, he hold on tight
He don't see ugly
Through blood shot eyes.

14. "John Deere Green" by Joe Diffie

There's nothing like redneck love. It's his and hers belt buckles with each others' names on them. Or declaring your love in bright paint graffiti atop the local water tower or bridge.

That's just what Billy Bob did in this 1993 song when he spray painted "Billy Boy loves Charlene" in John Deere green in letters three feet high. Even after they were married for decades, the couple could still look out in the distance and see the bright message that no paint could properly cover up. Now that is a legacy of everlasting love.

They say that after awhile dogs and their owners begin to look alike.  These country dogs  would agree.

15. "Like My Dog" by Billy Currington

There's nothing quite like the unconditional love of a dog. They're always glad to see you, they don't argue or complain, and they take no offense if you call their sister a b*tch. In this 2011 country song, a husband laments that he wishes his wife would give him the same stellar treatment as his dog:

He never tells me that he's sick of this house
He never says why don't you get off that couch?
He don't cost me nothin' when he wants to go out
I want you to love me like my dog.

16. "You Can't Pray the Gay Away" by Laura Bell Bundy

A hilarious jab at LGBTQ haters, this 2017 country ditty takes a swipe at those who believe in reprogramming and fighting what's in our DNA. A church lady narrator reminds us that although prayer is certainly powerful

There are some matters
Where we would be better servants of the Lord
By accepting what IS and not bothering Him.

She declares that no matter how devout you are, you can't change who you are by praying the gay away. And besides, you probably know someone who is gay, given its prevalence. Let that sink in.

17. "Online" by Brad Paisley

Every been catfished? The short, overweight, socially awkward pizza delivery guy in this 2007 song still lives with his parents, and he isn't exactly a hunk. However, the Internet has allowed him to assume an alter ego and chat with young women (or people pretending to be them).

He enjoys the irony and deception of luring the unsuspecting into online relationships he could never have in person:

I'm a sci-fi fanatic
Mild asthmatic
Never been to second base
But there's a whole 'nother me
That you need to see.

When it comes to social media and meeting people online, keep this guy in mind!

18. "Dancing with a Man" by Rodney Carrington

Two Texas cowboys hit the local watering hole and find themselves dancing with a dude dressed as a lady in this 2007 country ditty. Their dancing partner's real gender doesn't register at first, but then signs become apparent:

I think I'm dancing with a man
She's got callouses on her hands
She's got a voice deeper than mine
She gets a stiffy when we grind
I think I'm dancing with a man.

19. "How Can I Miss You If You Won't Go Away?" by Dan Hicks

Some people are hard to get rid of, like glitter or garlic breath, toenail fungus or bedbugs. The man in this country tune from 2007 desperately wants to lose his unwanted admirer. Problem is, she won't go away. He's talked to her parents, but yet she persists.

20. "Mississippi Squirrel Revival" by Ray Stevens

Although Ray Stevens is primarily a novelty singer—meaning that his songs are intended to be funny—this one climbed the country charts in 1984. It's about a preteen boy who sneaks a squirrel into the Sunday services at the First Self-Righteous Church in Pascagoula, Mississippi. The half-crazed squirrel escapes into the pews during the church service, climbs into people's clothes, and instigates an old-fashioned church revival where all kinds of confessions are made.

Turn to country music when you need a good laugh.  It's filled with funny stories and clever double meanings.

Questions & Answers

Question: What Delbert McClinton song has funny lyrics about a chicken?

Answer: Yes, it's a rather new release (2019) called "No Chicken on the Bone." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WxpkCW8Yiw

Listen up everybody 'cause I've got something to say

I might have fallen in love with a girl I just met today

I don't quite know how to feel

I can't believe she's real

Got me mumbling and stumbling around in a fuzzy haze

She makes pizza at the joint on the corner of Fifth and Main

I'm going back down there, I'm gonna ask her what's her name

Gonna tell her just how I feel

I can only hope that she'll

Maybe smile at me and say she feels the same

My heart started pounding like a runaway train

Knees started knocking when she called my name

Ain't nothing never, never, ever gonna be the same

She's the one that brightens up my day

The sun shines on her even when it rains

I'd say it's plain to see

What's happening to me

I'm a different man than I was yesterday

She's the kind woman take away your breath

She's the kind of woman scare you half to death

She's the kind of woman don't leave no chicken on the bone

She's the kind of woman take you way up high

She's the kind of woman set your world on fire

A woman like that, I just can't leave alone

She's the kind woman take away your breath

She's the kind of woman scare you half to death

She's the kind of woman don't leave no chicken on the bone.

Question: Do you remember a funny country song about a man saying all the things he can do, but only with his wife's permission (or some words with that general meaning)?

Answer: Even if this isn't the song you're after, I'm sure you'll enjoy it: "The Man Song" by Sean Morey (1995). Lyrics and YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7Y0I91rubg&t=

I don't take no crap from anyone else but you,

I wear the pants around here when I'm finished with your laundry,

'Cause I'm a guy you don't wanna fight,

When I say jump you say, "Yeah Right!"

I'm the man of this house until you get home

(He's the man, He's the man)

What I say goes around here ... right out the window,

And I don't want to hear a lot of whining ... so I'll shut up,

The sooner you learn who's boss around here

The sooner you can give me my orders, Dear

'Cause I'm head honcho around here, but its all in my head!

(He's the man, he's the man)

And I can have sex any time that you want,

Cause I'm a man who has needs, but they're not that important,

And don't expect any flowers from me 'cause if I'm not mistaken you prefer jewelry.

I'm the king of my castle when you're not around

(He's the man, He's the man)

And I'll drink and watch sports whenever I want to get in trouble

And I'll come home when I'm good and ready ... to sleep on the couch

Cause a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do

and I'm gonna do what you tell me to

Because I'm top dog around here but I've been neutered!

(He's the man, He's the man)

You da man!

Question: I am looking for an old country song that sounds like Goofy with a shaking voice. Any idea?

Answer: Although that's not striking a familiar chord with me, take a look at Ray Stevens' discography, as he specializes in novelty songs.

Question: I'm looking for a song with the lyrics, "I like big dumb dogs, fireplaces with crackling logs." Any help?

Answer: The closest thing I could find to it was a 1966 song by Jean Shepard and Ray Pillow called, "I'll Take the Dog." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSzSPutEkfE

Question: Do you know a song that is about stupid questions? It includes the example of looking at a person's lathered up face and asking if he's going to shave and falling down an elevator shaft and then asking are you hurt? The chorus includes "ask a stupid question." My brother used to play it doing and an old geezer voice and I wondered where it was from. Thank you!

Answer: It took me a while to find it, but here it is: "Foolish Questions" (1979) by Johnny Cash. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkBul7B3eK4

Here are the lyrics:

Now you've all heard foolish questions and no doubt you've wondered why

Some person will ask a foolish question and expect a sensible reply

Like when you take your girl some candy, say maybe just after tea

You notice how she'll grab it and then she'll say, "Is this for me?"

Foolish questions! You can answer when you can

"No, I bought this candy for your ma or pa, or for John, the hired hand

"I just thought you'd like to see it. Now I'm gonna take it away"

Now wasn't that a foolish question? You'll hear 'em ev'ry day

And then most every morning, there is someone 'round the place

Who sees you take the shaving brush and lather up your face

And as you give the razor a preliminary wave

This fool will walk up and ask you, "Are you gonna take a shave?"

Foolish questions! Your answer is, I hope

"No! I ain't prepared for shavin', I just like the taste of soap!

I kinda like to take the shaving brush and paint myself this way"

Now wasn't that a foolish question? You'll hear 'em ev'ry day!

Now then there's this fella who meets you on your way

And asks you why your all dressed up and listens while you say

That you just been returning from the funeral of poor old Uncle Ned

As soon as you have told him, he will say, "Is Ned dead?"

Foolish questions! You might as well reply

"No, he thought he'd have the funeral now. Then, later on, he'd die

You know Ned was always so original, he wanted it that way"

Now wasn't that a foolish question? You'll hear 'em ev'ry day!

Now suppose the elevator guy should forget to close the door

And you should tumble down, oh say forty-seven floors

And when you reach the bottom and you're lying there inert

Some fool will stick his head down the shaft and holler, "Are you hurt?"

Foolish questions! Your dying words are

"No! I was in an awful hurry and that elevator's just too slow

Usually saves a lot of time, you know, comin' down this way"

Now wasn't that a foolish question? You'll hear 'em ev'ry day!

Question: What is the name of the song in the early 70s about being rescued while not wanting to?

Answer: All I could locate was “Dependin' on You” by The Doobie Brothers (1978), but that's from the late 70s. You can leave a follow-up comment in the Comments Section of the playlist article.

Question: I'm trying to find a country song I used in a political science class in 2008 as a comparison between America and Canada. It was funny, and I am pretty sure the lyrics included the "F" word in it. It was a country song. Could you help?

Answer: The song by Tim Hicks, "Stronger Beer" (2013) and "Oh ... Canada" by Classified are the only two I could come up with based on that information. However, the date is an issue in the first example (and the lyrics don't feature the expletive you recall) and in the second example, it's a rap song rather than a country song. Nevertheless, here are the YouTube links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E064kb3UnU and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gd1FDZ_kRM.

If these aren't it, try to come up with some lyrics you remember. That would help me look for it.

Question: Who sings the song, "Five Dollar Fine for Whining?" And where can I buy a copy?

Answer: The song "Five Dollar Fine for Whining" has been sung by the late Chris LeDoux (on his 1996 Stampede album) or The Geezinslaws (on their 1996 Blah Blah Blah album). Here are the lyrics and YouTube featuring LeDoux and a guest appearance at the end by Garth Brooks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hgDQqjKErA

We're a fun lovin' crowd, kinda rowdy and loud

Our jukebox won't play no sad songs

So don't come in here, and cry in your beer

'Cause we don't care 'bout who done who wrong

We've got a five dollar fine for whining

We'll tell you before you come in

If it ain't on your mind to have a good time

Ya'll come back and see us again

Well we don't really care about your clothes or your hair

This party is open to all

Yeah we like a good joke, and it's alright to smoke

We got just one rule on the wall

(Repeat chorus)

Now there's too many fools makin' too many rules

That's one thing you can't say about us

Cause we all get along when we sing the same song

There's just one thing that causes a fuss.

If you cannot find the single for this song on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, or other major streaming services then I have seen multiple copies of Chris Ledoux's album Stampede with that song available for sale on eBay.

Question: Do you know a country song with nursery rhymes in it?

Answer: George Jones had a 1966 song called "Run 'Em Off" that features Little Red Riding Hood, and Hank Thompson had a 1968 song called "I Have a Humpty Dumpty Heart."

Ted Parks - Great creative song that I added to the Halloween playlist. Terrific to hear from the artist himself!

Ted Parks on August 27, 2020:

Great list! Coolest thing about country music is that it can make fun of itself!

Have you heard this one (great for Halloween!)

Nathaniel - I love that song! I'll add it. Thanks for the suggestion and have a great Sunday.

Nathaniel Donnelly on August 02, 2020:

There is one song i saw missing, it is a song by lee ann womack called "I'll Think of a Reason Later" cause there is a particular lyric in the song and it goes like

"I drew horns and blacked out her tooth with a marker. Childish yes but she made such a thin little target. I couldn't be happier on my own. I got the slightest of a jealous bone. Seeing her with him tends to enlarge it."

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 01, 2020:

Greg - Ray Stevens has a 2006 novelty song called "When the Kids Are Gone." I think this is the song you're looking for.

Greg on July 31, 2020:

Im looking for a song with lyrics that go. When the kids move out we're gonna make love in the kitchen

When the kids move out we're gonna smoke them funny smokes

When all these kids are gone we're gonna party all the time

gonna run around naked telling dirty jokes

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 24, 2020:

Bob - Yep, that's the one! Big hit.

Robert Sacchi on July 23, 2020:

It could be I misremembered and the original is the Judd's "Mamma He's Crazy" is the original. Part of the lyrics is "...crazy. Crazy over me"

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 23, 2020:

MG - Some of these are really quite funny.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 23, 2020:

Bob - The original that Mama She's Lazy" is doing a parody of is "Mama He's Crazy" by The Judds which is why Wayland put "she" in all caps. I could not find a song called "Mama She's Crazy" but I could find the parody, "Mama She's Lazy." I'm thinking Wayland may have misremembered it, a common occurrence or else it's just really hard to find. Not sure.

Robert Sacchi on July 23, 2020:

"Mama She's Lazy" is a parody of "Mama She's Crazy". "Mama She's Crazy" is about a man telling his mother his wonderful wife is crazy over him. In "Mama She's Lazy" the man is complaining to his mother about his lazy spouse.

MG Singh emge from Singapore on July 23, 2020:

Wonderful that you update this article. Though I am not too fond of country music after seeing your selection I think I'll have a go at it.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 23, 2020:

Wayland - There's a song called, "Mama She's Lazy" (1984) by Pinkard & Bowden. I'm wondering if perhaps you're thinking of that song?

Wayland on July 23, 2020:

Do you have the lyrics to mama SHES crazy?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 10, 2020:

Bob - Thanks for that addition!

Robert Sacchi on July 08, 2020:

Have you considered - "Wildwood Weed" by Jim Stafford?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 08, 2020:

MG - Thanks for your kind kudos. Have a wonderful day.

MG Singh emge from Singapore on July 07, 2020:

Another great selection. I love country songs and they are part of my collection.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 07, 2020:

Bob - I will do a playlist about Tennessee and add that one to it (since that's where the narrator resides). Tennessee is a great place to live and so is Texas (although that one is really hot).

Robert Sacchi on July 07, 2020:

You're welcome. Have you considered "All my Ex's live in Texas"- George Strait?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 06, 2020:

Bob - Thanks for this recommendation. I've also added it to a current playlist on birds that I'm writing so great timing!

Robert Sacchi on July 04, 2020:

Have your considered "Bird" by Jerry Reed?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 03, 2020:

Tamie - That's not ringing a bell if it's not "I'll Take the Dog."

Tamie on July 01, 2020:

I thought it may be a Mac Davis song.

Lyrics about loving a big dumb dog and fireplaces with crackling logs. Maybe from the 1970’s early 80’s?

Peggy - Glad I could help! We could all use a laugh these days.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 05, 2020:

Some of these titles and lyrics are really funny. Thanks for the smiles today.

Carol - Moments by Emerson Drive but I don't see how that fits with the theme of funny country songs?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 07, 2019:

Bob - You've actually led me to the answer. Thanks. I could not have figured this one out without YOU.

Anonymous - The country song you're looking for is "Who Dat (Messin' with that Woman of Mine), a song by David Frizzell from 1984.

Robert Sacchi on September 06, 2019:

An earlier Pop version is "who's that knocking" by The Genies.

Robert Sacchi on September 06, 2019:

Could that be the rapper song, "Who Dat" by Lil'' Murph?

I used to have a single cassette back in the 90s it was a country rap song about cant dance or my two left feet. Do you know who sings the song?

Tom Cornett - Thanks for stopping by. Bobby Braddock is a real songwriting talent. Loved the Dolly Parton song. Yikes.

Tom Cornett from Ohio on June 28, 2019:

Great Hub! I've heard and enjoyed most of these songs over the years. Digging back in the 80s folks can find an album called, "Hard Pore Cornography" by Bobby Braddock. Songs included, "Dolly Parton's Hits" and "I Lobster and Never Flounder. Bobby is a dear old friend. He's written and co-written many hits including, "DIVORCE" and "He Stopped Loving Her Today." He is one of the great treasures of Country Music. Again....Great Hub.

Robert Sacchi on June 14, 2019:

You're welcome.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 14, 2019:

Bob - Thanks for the suggestion.

Robert Sacchi on June 13, 2019:

What about "Hotter Than a Two Dollar Pistol" by George Jones? A good example of not understanding the concept.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 13, 2019:

Anonymous - It would help to have some sample lyrics in particular as well as other clues. For example, do you, know the decade, whether it was a band or male/female individual artist, do you recall what the song was generally about, etc.? That would certainly help. Perhaps a reader recalls the video based on the limited detail you provided here. Sorry.

Anonymous on June 13, 2019:

Do know a country video with girl in mustang at gas station?

Bob - I have a number of playlists in queue so I'm never out of ideas. I appreciate the idea!

Robert Sacchi on May 16, 2019:

Yes, there are some good songs about gambling.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 16, 2019:

Bob - I should probably add a playlist about gambling. This would certainly be good for that list! Thank you for the idea!

Robert Sacchi on May 14, 2019:

Consider "When You're Hot, You're Hot" by Jerry Reed.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 14, 2019:

Joseph, That's wonderful! Now that you mention the song, "Talking to the Wrong Man," by Michael Martin Murphey (1988), of course, I remember it! Glad you found it!

Joseph Inman on May 14, 2019:

You might not believe this but as I was reading your response, I remembered the next line of the song. And after two years, I’ve found it. ‘Talkin’ to the wrong man’ with Michael Martin Murphy and his son Ryan Murphy. Thank you. If I wouldn’t have written I wouldn’t have thought more of the song.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 13, 2019:

Joseph, Unfortunately, I've attempted -- with no success -- to look the song up under various versions of the hints you listed using several lyrics databases I'm hoping that another reader might see your comment and recognize the song.

Joseph Inman on May 12, 2019:

He is one that is driving me crazy. It’s two guys singing, country, and I guess it sounds like it’s from the 90s...? I heard it on satellite radio. One says ‘daddy I have a question’ and he asked how his father and mother get along so great. This father says it’s not so great and he sings back, ‘son I have a question’ and proceeds to ask his son how he does his hair because the thinks it’s what his wife would like. The son says that he and his girlfriend aren’t getting along so well. I have not heard the song in two years or so so I’m sorry if I got some of the parts wrong. Anyways, I’m typing this on my phone so if spelling or punctuation is off, I’m sorry.

I would have added it to the question above but I typed too much. Any help would be appreciated.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 27, 2019:

Bob - I love that funny song! Got it at #5. A real hoot.

Robert Sacchi on April 27, 2019:

"Wolf Creek Pass" is a fun one. Consider "I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home" by Donald Brandt. A man tells about how his wife wants to make her home like a bar. This way he can spend his money at home instead of the local bar.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 27, 2019:

Dougie - I found a Lynn Anderson song that has to be what you are looking for: "At the Time" by Lynn Anderson (1970). I also listened to "Wolf Creek Pass" for the first time. omg

Dougie on April 25, 2019:

I could add "Wolf Creek Pass" and a few others from long ago.

Can someone help me find a name for the following which I think is from the early '70s, and maybe add it to this list? Google has let me down.

"Well I told her that I loved her, cuz I loved her at the time,

And I told her that I didn't want any other lips on mine,

And I told her that her kisses tasted sweeter than wine,

But I hadn't tasted champagne at the time!"

I'm trying to identify a spoken word country song from the 70s. In it a man enumerates all the reasons his wife used to avoid sex with him. In the end, he says that 7 times he was successful. The last line is, "And once, I thought I hurt you, because you moved". Can you name the song?

Much of it, if not overtly silly, has a light quality, and some of is so dark it has a certain humor.

Frances Metcalfe on February 18, 2018:

Don't know any of the songs but the some of the lyrics are certainly tragi-comic. Perhaps most of the people in them should consider ditching and starting over? It made me smile.

Great assortment of songs. I always really liked He drinks Tequila and she talks dirty in Spanish just not sure if it counts as a country song. Love your list of songs.
