    Hell... I'm a fan of David Allen Coe.... I like a guy that speaks his mind and don't care what anybody thinks. I went and saw him play in a bar near Corsicana Texas a few years ago

    He was the lead singer of Rebel meets Rebel....Iv'e got "if that anin't country" on my ipod , but anyways here's your lyrics:

    THE OLD MAN WAS COVERED WITH TATTOOS AND SCARS

    HE GOT SOME IN PRISON AND OTHERS IN BARS

    THE REST HE GOT WORKIN' ON OLD JUNK CARS

    IN THE DAYTIME

    THEY LOOKED LIKE TOMBSTONES IN OUR YARD

    AND I NEVER SEEN HIM WHEN HE WASN'T TIRED

    AND MEAN

    HE SOLD USED PARTS TO MAKE ENDS MEET

    COVERED WITH GREASE FROM HIS HEAD TO HIS FEET

    CUSSIN' THE SWEAT AND THE TEXAS HEAT

    AND MOSQUITERS

    AND THE NEIGHBORS SAID WE LIVED LIKE HICKS

    BUT THEY BRUNG THEIR CARS FOR PA TO FIX

    ANYHOW

    HE WAS VETERAN-PROUD, TRIED AND TRUE

    HE'D FOUGHT TILL HIS HEART WAS BLACK AND BLUE

    DIDN'T KNOW HOW HE'D MADE IT THROUGH

    THE HARD TIMES

    HE BOUGHT OUR HOUSE ON THE G.I. BILL

    BUT IT WASN'T WORTH ALL HE HAD TO KILL

    TO GIT IT

    HE DRANK PEARL IN A CAN AND JACK DANIELS BLACK

    CHEWED TOBACCO FROM A MAIL POUCH SACK

    HAD AN OLD DOG THAT WAS TRAINED TO ATTACK

    SOMETIMES

    HE'D GET DRUNK AND MEAN AS A RATTLESNAKE

    AND THERE WASN'T TOO MUCH THAT HE WOULD TAKE

    FROM A STRANGER

    THERE WERE THIRTEEN KIDS AND A BUNCH OF DOGS

    A HOUSE FULL OF CHICKENS AND A YARD FULL OF HOGS

    I SPENT THE SUMMERTIME CUTTIN' UP LOGS FOR THE WINTER

    TRYIN' LIKE THE DEVIL TO FIND THE LORD

    WORKIN' LIKE A ****** FOR MY ROOM AND BOARD

    COAL-BURIN' STOVE, NO NATURAL GAS

    IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ***

    IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, IT'LL HAIRLIP THE POPE

    IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, IT'S A DAMN GOOD JOKE

    I'VE SEEN THE GRAND OLE OPRY, AND I'VE MET JOHNNY CASH

    IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ***

    RECITATION:

    MAMA SELLS EGGS AT A GROCERY STORE

    MY OLDEST SISTER IS A FIRST-RATE WHORE

    DAD SAYS SHE CAN'T COME HOME ANYMORE

    AND HE MEANS IT

    MA JUST SITS AND KEEPS HER SILENCE

    SISTER, SHE LEFT 'CAUSE DAD GOT VIOLENT

    AND HE KNOWS IT

    MAMA SHE'S OLD FAR BEYOND HER TIME

    FROM CHOPPING TOBACCO AND I'VE SEEN HER CRYIN'

    WHEN BLOOD STARTED FLOWIN' FROM HER CALLOUSED HAND

    AND IT HURT ME

    SHE'D JUST KEEP WORKIN' TRYIN' TO HELP THE OLD MAN

    TO THE END OF ONE ROW AND BACK AGAIN

    LIKE ALWAYS

    SHE'S BEEN THROUGH HELL SINCE JUNIOR WENT TO JAIL

    WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT SHE AIN'T NEVER FAILED

    TO GET DOWN ON HER KNEES AND PRAY

    BECAUSE SHE LOVES HIM

    TOLD ALL THE NEIGHBORS HE WAS OFF IN THE WAR

    FIGHTIN' FOR FREEDOM, HE'S GOOD TO THE CORE

    AND SHE'S PROUD

    NOW OUR PLACE WAS A GRAVEYARD FOR AUTOMOBILES

    AT THE END OF THE PORCH THERE WAS FOUR STACKS OF WHEELS

    AND TIRES FOR SALE FOR A DOLLAR OR TWO

    CASH

    THERE WAS FIFTY HOLES IN AN OLD TIN ROOF

    ME AND MY FAMILY WE WAS LIVIN' PROOF

    THE PEOPLE WHO FORGOT ABOUT POOR WHITE TRASH

    AND IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ***

    IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, IT'LL HAIRLIP THE POPE

    IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, IT'S A DAMN GOOD JOKE

    I'VE SEEN THE GRAND OLE OPRY, AND I'VE MET JOHNNY CASH

    IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ***

    I'M THINKING TONIGHT OF MY BLUE EYES

    CONCERNING THE GREAT SPECKLED BIRD

    I DIDN'T KNOW GOD MADE HONKY-TONK ANGELS

    AND WENT BACK TO THE WILD SIDE OF LIFE

    i LOVE david allen coe. he rocks. it makes me mad he is never recognized by "big country" for his work - he is talented - and has that i don't give a **** attitude that i love. i like his dirty and racist songs - he is a trip. my favorite song is if that aint country - i have the lyrics memorized. i see you already got them,so i won't bother copy/pasteing them here again.

    very cool question - ♥
