Got A Little Redneck In You?

While I wasn't lucky enough to be born in the South, I did spend the better part of my growing up years there. It was long enough for a just a little bit of redneck to burn into my soul, and I'll tell you that once it's in, there ain't no washing it off.

Later, I moved to other parts of the U.S. and even earned a Ph.D., but I'll be derned if there's some things that just won't shake. I grew up in the country, loving the music of George Jones, Hank Williams Jr., and Tanya Tucker. I loved both Brunswick stew and barbeque hash (South Carolina style), bought straight from local Volunteer Fire Department fundraisers. I wore my hair big because in a small town, the higher the hair the closer you are to God.

I love redneck songs because they're a throwback to the people I used to know, some of whom I'm still on-line friends with. If you have a little redneck in you (or a lot) celebrate it with a custom Redneck Anthem playlist.

1. "Redneck Girl" by Bellamy Brothers

The narrator in this classic 1982 song reveres redneck girls with their tender hearts and calloused hands. They wear their names on their belts and their hearts on their sleeves. Redneck girls live for Fridays when they get to cruise through town in their daddies' pick up truck.

One day he hopes to be lucky enough to find his own redneck girl to settle down with: "Give me a, give me a, give me a redneck girl."

2. "Boys 'Round Here" by Blake Shelton featuring Pistol Annies

In this 2013 song, a self-styled Mr. Irresistible is trying to convince a girl he likes to come down to the river and have a little fun with him, redneck style. He explains that redneck boys prefer Hank Williams Jr. to The Beatles, they stay out all night at the honky tonk, and they drink ice cold beer. He also tells her they chew tobacco and talk trucks, drive trucks. Big trucks. Muddy trucks.

Maybe he needs to work on his sales pitch.

3. "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" by Trace Adkins

The guy in this 2005 hit is sitting in a honky tonk bar watching the backside (or "badonkadonk") of a woman who is dancing in tight pants. For whatever reason, he just ogles her rather than trying to make a move.

Maybe he's married (or she is). Maybe he's already tried to approach her and she just shot him down. Or she's a paid dancer, if you know what I mean. Whatever the case, he sure enough likes what he sees:

And ooh well, shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There ought to be a law, get the sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy how'd she even get them britches on?
With that honky tonk badonkadonk.

4. "Truck Yeah" by Tim McGraw

Rednecks love their trucks. They take them off-road to sling mud, use them to tailgate at football games, and use them as redneck limousines on dates.

The narrator in this 2012 song recognizes, however, that not all rednecks live in the country anymore. He hopes he can find him a girl who also likes trucks:

It don't matter who you are
Got a little fight, got a little love?
Got a little redneck in your blood?
Are you one of us?
Truck yeah!

Mess with me and you mess with the whole trailer park.

Mess with me and you mess with the whole trailer park.

Jeff Foxworthy Says You Might Be A Redneck If ...

How many of these can you plead guilty to?

If your neighbors think you're a detective because a cop always brings you home.

If you have a complete set of salad bowls and they all say Cool Whip on the side.

The blue book value of your truck goes up and down depending on how much gas it has in it.

If your working television sits on top of your non-working television

If you've ever made change in the offering plate at church.

Your lifetime goal is to own a fireworks stand

When you see a sign that says "Say No To Crack," it reminds you to pull your jeans up.

You've ever climbed a water tower with a bucket of paint to defend your sister's honor.

You come home from the garbage dump with more than you went with.

You have spent more on your pickup truck than on your education.

If you own a home with wheels on it and five cars without.

You ever cut your grass and found a car.

Your wife can climb a tree faster than your cat.

Your mother has "ammo" on her Christmas list.

You've ever been involved in a custody fight over a hunting dog.

The Home Shopping Network operator recognizes your voice.

You've ever stolen toilet paper.

The cashier asks to see your ID and you show them your belt buckle.

The taillight covers of your car are made of red tape.

You prefer car keys to Q-tips.

You've ever given rat traps as gifts.

You have a hefty bag where the window of your car should be.

Your mother doesn't remove the Marlboro from her lips before telling the State Trooper to kiss her ass.

The neighbors started a petition over your Christmas lights.

You ever got too drunk to fish.

Your dog and your wallet are both on a chain.

You think mud rasslin' should be an Olympic sport.

There are few things in life that hard liquor and a hammer won't fix.

There are few things in life that hard liquor and a hammer won't fix.

5. "I Got Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks

Garth Brooks' breakout hit, this 1990 song is the quintessential anthem of rednecks — the one that says "I ain't ashamed of who I am." All decked out in boots and his common finery, a redneck shows up uninvited to a black tie event that his ex-girlfriend is hosting. She's moved on to a life of fine living, but her scorned lover toasts her, proclaiming he loves his friends in low places.

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

This 1993 song tells a redneck love story about a man who meets his honey near the lobster tank of a local restaurant. Over an order of chicken fried steak, they decided they were meant to be together, so he made her the queen of his double wide trailer.

The only problem is that she sometimes has a wandering eye. She's not to blame though; that's just how her mind works. He just goes to retrieve ...

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.

7. "Keep It Redneck" by The Lacs

This 2013 song celebrates rednecks as the salt of the earth. They're backwoods, hardworking and love their four wheel drives. They say "ya'll," use manners and might party all night, but they're real good people.

8. "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight" by Hank Williams Jr.

This 1981 song by Bocephus is a classic. He celebrates redneck bachelorhood with a summer party filled with lovely ladies, alcohol and a pig roast. He invites you to kick off the summer by hopping into his hot tub built for 10. However, he's dead serious about you not stepping on his cowboy boots.

If duct tape don't fix'r then you ain't using enough duct tape.

If duct tape don't fix'r then you ain't using enough duct tape.

9. "Hicktown" by Jason Aldean

If you grew up in a small Southern town, then this 2005 song hits right where home is. Small towns are filled with Friday night football games, tractor pulls and loud country music. Everybody knows everybody's business, but it's a whole lot better than living among strangers.

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

In this hilarious 2008 "hickhop" song, the narrator says that he may have a beer can or two around the yard, but since he kicked his no-good woman out, there's been no trash in his trailer. He declares that he may be many things, but trailer trash ain't one of them:

I wear a suit to church and stuff, and Daddy's the one that made me tough.
He told me, "Son, don't be ashamed of who you are and our family name."
I'm makin' it proud, sayin' it loud, doin' my thing a country crowd.
I tell you the truth and don't give a damn. But I ain`t what you all say I am.
No there's no trailer trash livin' here.

11. "Redneck Woman" by Gretchen Wilson

She may be a woman, but a lady she ain't. In this song from 2004, a redneck woman admits proudly that she's never been the Barbie doll type.

Instead of being a "high class broad," she declares she's a beer-guzzling, barefooted, four-wheeling country mama who keeps her Christmas lights up all year 'round. She gets her lingerie at the local Walmart and knows every word to the songs of Tanya Tucker, Hank Williams Jr. and Charlie Daniels. (Because real rednecks do, and they're dang proud of it!)

12. "Redneck Crazy" by Tyler Farr

Uh oh. The lady in this 2013 song has broken the heart of the wrong redneck. He's gone off the rails and intends to seek revenge on his cheating ex-girlfriend. He might even pick a fight with her new man — the one who drives the (ahem) embarrassingly small truck.

The self-branded crazy redneck plans to drive his truck into her neighborhood and park it in her yard with its high beams on, aimed straight at his ex-girlfriend's bedroom windows. He'll sit on its hood and drink beer, throwing his empty cans at painful memories.

Sounds like big trouble brewing. Hey, y'all, someone call the law.

Willie Lee, redneck with a cute smile.

Willie Lee, redneck with a cute smile.

There's an intelligent redneck in all of us somewhere.

— Rodney Atkins, American country music singer

13. "Redneck Country Song" by Lenny Cooper (featuring Bucky Covington)

What redneck girl wouldn't want to hear, "Baby, I swear, you're the shell in my shotgun"? The country fella in this 2014 song is buttering up his buttercup real good with compliments that are too good to miss.

He also compares his girl to

The first swallow of a beer when I pop one.
​My double wide way back in the woods,
​And my four by four when the muddin' gets good.

14. "Trashy Women" by Confederate Railroad

The man in this 1993 redneck classic was raised in polite society and was expected to date debutantes and socialites, but he disappointed his parents.

Instead, trashy women turn him on, with their tight clothes, dyed hair, and makeup that's overdone. He proudly acknowledges that he is tacky and likes his women tacky, too.

Celebrate a purty redneck Christmas with a shotgun shell wreath.

Celebrate a purty redneck Christmas with a shotgun shell wreath.

15. "Bubba Shot The Jukebox" by Mark Chestnut

Poor ol' Bubba. In this 1992 song, it seems like the mentally unstable redneck was hanging out with his friends in a local bar, listening to the jukebox when an especially sad one came on. He didn't like it none and decided to shoot the dang thang.

Well, someone called the law on him, and Bubba was charged with reckless discharge of a gun. He replied, "Reckless! Hell!" I shot just where I was aiming."

Aww, Bubba. Somebody go bail him out again. Keep a better watch on him next time, ya hear?

16. "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" by Kenny Chesney

The down home boy in this 1999 song has him a real purty catch: a girl who is crazy about his farmer's tan and thinks his tractor is sexy. Watching her boyfriend tillin' up the land makes her dream of having a farm and family with him one day. Redneck goals.

17. "High Tech Redneck" by George Jones

Although this 1993 song is a little technologically dated, the message still shines through. It struck a personal chord, too, as I've seen the inside of trailers where residents had televisions four times the size of mine! (Jealous.)

The redneck fella George Jones describes loves to accessorize his trailer and his truck in all the latest technology, from a satellite television with hundreds of channels to 20 sub-woofers to the latest cell phone. He's the envy of all his friends.

18. "Redneck Paradise" by Kid Rock featuring Hank Williams Jr.

Redneck paradise — otherwise known as home — is a hole in the wall where the rules for living are laid back. According to this 2012 song, home may be a shanty, but the people are nice, you don't need reservations to drop on in, and rednecks measure their wealth in family and friends.

19. "I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home" by David Frizzell

In this humorous 1982 hit, a wife is finally fed up with her husband coming home drunk every night. As a solution, she declares that she's going to transform the family home into a bar so he can feel more comfortable at home.

She claims that a wino will be her interior decorator:

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.
She said: Just bring your Friday paycheck, and I'll cash them all right here.
And I'll keep on tap — for all your friends, their favorite kinds of beer.

20. "Cheater Cheater" by Joey + Rory

The woman in this 2008 song is country pis*ed, and she don't mince no words. Her man has cheated on her with a woman down at the local waterin' hole and now she's lettin' him know what she thinks of the both of 'em.

The redneck wife plays a guessing game of how the cheaters courted and calls her husband a "liar, liar" before telling him to "load up all your stuff and get the hell out of my house." She also has a parting message for the home wrecking woman he cheated with:

Hey, I wish her well and she rots in hell, and you can tell her I said so
Cheater, cheater where'd you meet that no good white trash ho?

Redneck ashtray:  Put your butt here.

Redneck ashtray: Put your butt here.

Peggy - It seemed all too familiar!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 01, 2020:

I loved the descriptions of people possibly being rednecks by Jeff Foxworthy. Haha! Thanks for the smiles today!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 06, 2019:

Anonymous - All I could think of on this one was "Boys 'Round Here" by Blake Shelton (featuring Pistol Annies & Friends) but that doesn't feature the do do do and it wasn't all that long ago. Perhaps you could give more info or maybe a reader recognizes the song.

Anonymous on September 06, 2019:

YEARS ago, there was a song about rednecks that started out as: Redneck, do do do do, do do do. Redneck, do do do do, do do do do. In it, part of it went "R E D D N E C K" redneck. I have been searching for a week and cannot find it. Does anyone know who sung it and the tite name?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 20, 2017:

MizBejabbers - This comment for some reason was hanging out in the spam folder. Maybe someone was scared of you, darlin'? I've lived in the South most of my life and the years when I haven't I struggled to return here. There's something magic about the place. Thanks for leaving a comment. Glad to have finally found it!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 13, 2016:

Larry - They do have a certain humor to them.

Larry Rankin from Oklahoma on September 12, 2016:

A lot of hick little ditties. I live in the heart of hickatude, so nothing new to me:-)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 09, 2016:

shanmarie - Thank you for your kind comment and the suggestion. I've added it as #74. Loved that video, too!

Shannon Henry from Texas on September 09, 2016:

Your commentary is hilarious! I will admit there are quite a few red neck songs I can't stand. "Boys 'Round Here" is one of them. LOL. But there are also quite a few I like, like "Red neck Woman." As for suggestions to add to the list, my friend Amy Rose has a single from 2012 called "Redneck Reunion (Party Like a Redneck)". The video is on YouTube. You might like it.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 09, 2016:

teaches12345 - I love that! Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend.

teaches12345 on September 08, 2016:

As the old saying goes, some of my friends are rednecks. Great post on a section of our population that should be admired for their honesty and humility.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 04, 2016:

Misbejabbers - No harm, no foul. I'm glad to know someone else is having the same problem I have. I faithfully make comments on my iphone and they just don't register. Have a wonderful week ahead!

Mizbejabbers on September 04, 2016:

Sorry about the comment comment. I'm a little frustrated because several of my comments haven't made it lately and I think those are the ones I've made when reading from my phone. I don't know what the technical problem is.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 04, 2016:

Linda - Glad you like it! Woo hoo!

Linda Bilyeu from Orlando, FL on September 04, 2016:

Yeehaw!! I know every one of these songs and I was hoping Redneck Woman made the list...among ALL the other classic hits that made the cut.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 04, 2016:

MsDora - People used to shun the definition, as it meant other things, but now it's a proud label a la Gretchen Wilson and other country stars. It's equated with the simple pleasures of country life. Thank you for following my playlists! I hope you are well.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 04, 2016:

Faith Reaper - I would bet you're surrounded by rednecks, as am I. I can appreciate the songs though. They are very funny and the people at heart are generally good. Thanks for reading! Have a great holiday weekend!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 04, 2016:

MizBejabbers - This is the first I've seen of your comment. The term "redneck" has evolved over the years. Thanks for reading.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on September 04, 2016:

I don't remember ever checking for a definition of redneck. I think I understand it better now. This is another humorous list with stories that make me smile. Carry on with your playlists!

Faith Reaper from southern USA on September 03, 2016:

Hahaha ...these are great, Flourish!

I've been listening to country here of late, and they do have some doozies out and your list provides some great redneck songs no doubt.

Your added photos of "redneck", such as the Shot gun shells wreath for Christmas is perfect and the toilet "butt" spot.

There's a whole lot of rednecks around these parts down here.

Enjoyed reading and listening.

Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on September 03, 2016:

Well, my comment didn't get published, and I don't know if it was because of what I said or because I was having problems with my computer that day. Anyway, to a true Southerner, "Redneck" is not a proud term. I would hate to be called one because it would brand me a cultural boor. However, I played C&W music as a disk jockey back in the 70s and I do like the music.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 03, 2016:

Suhail and my dog - I can imagine that neither you nor your dog are rednecks (haha) given the types of hubs you publish, but I certainly appreciate you stopping by! My best wishes to you both!

Suhail and my dog on September 03, 2016:

This is a music genre that I can ignore for I have no 'redneck" in me LOL.

The closest I can think of are those country/blues based ballads sung by the 80s bands that have some very minor ingredients of "redneckism" in them hahaha.

But I am glad you wrote on this music genre.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 02, 2016:

Frank - They do have quite an appeal, don't they? My favorite of the moment is Cheater, Cheater. The lyrics on that are priceless.

Frank Atanacio on September 02, 2016:

Flourish I have to admit.. I really enjoyed this playlist.. I even played some of the titles from u-tube as I checked out the hub.. bless you girl :)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 01, 2016:

Linda - A lot of folks may not claim their redneck tendencies but if they use a lot of duct tape and fancy DIY repair projects, grow crops in their front yard, or country music, those are signs.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on August 31, 2016:

I've never quite understood what a redneck is until now. Thanks for the informative and entertaining article, Flourish!

Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on August 30, 2016:

I'm a Southerner, but I'm not a redneck. Don't call me Darlin', Darlin, you don't even know my name.

I’ve seen Jeff Foxworthy’s list, and some of the things on it are Southern, not just redneck, but I noticed that he says “if” and you “may” be a redneck. C&W has glamorized rednecks, just like an ignorant element of society has changed the spelling of “sougain” and tried to glamorize it as “suggin”. To a true Southerner, boy, them’s fightin’ words. It’s kind of like “cowboys” in Texas. Anyway, I played country music as a disk jockey in the 70s and enjoyed it. There are some songs on your list I liked, some I never heard, and some I’m glad that I never heard.

I gotta say that no. 11 by Gretchen Wilson reminds me of our current State Attorney General. She said in her political ads that she was a pro-life, gun totin’, Christian woman. No joke. Maybe we should call her Darlin.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 30, 2016:

Bill - I love those songs! Nothing like them for a good laugh and they are really catchy, too. You may not be from the South, but looking at the photos of your backyard, I'd say you have at least an ounce of redneck in you. Just saying! Love ya buddy!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on August 30, 2016:

Some of the titles are just classic, aren't they? I love redneck songs even though I must admit to not having an ounce of redneck in me. LOL I do listen to them, though, and enjoy them just as much as if I chewed tobacco. :)
