Jackson Browne, “Redneck Friend”

Jackson Browne, “Redneck Friend,” from the album, “For Everyman.”

Also very nice. We were really into Jackson Browne too back in the day. He was huge in the 1970’s.

We were hippies back then, and we really hated rednecks. I still sort of do, actually. Somehow the rednecks won the revolution, took over the government and ruled society. How the Hell did that happen. It could so easily have gone the other way.

This song sounds like the people Jason lives around ha ha.

Pretty little one
How has it all begun?
They’re teaching you how to walk, but you’re already on the run
Little one, what you gonna do?
Little one, honey, it’s all up to you

Now your daddy’s in the den shootin’ up the evening news
Mama’s with a friend, lately she’s been so confused
Little one, come on and take my hand
Well, I may not have the answer, but I believe I got a plan

Honey, you shake, I’ll rattle, we’ll roll on down the line
See if we can’t get in touch with a very close friend of mine
But let me clue you in
It ain’t like him
To argue or pretend
Well, honey let me introduce you to my redneck friend

Well, they’ve got a little list of all those things of which they don’t approve
Well, they’ve got to keep their eyes on you or you might make your move
Little one, I really wish you would
Little one, I think the damage would do you good

Honey, you shake, I’ll rattle, we’ll roll on down the line
We’re going to forget all about the battle, it’s gonna feel so fine
‘Cause he’s the missing link
The kitchen sink
Eleven on a scale of ten
Well honey, let me introduce you to my redneck friend

Well honey, you shake, I’ll rattle, we’ll roll on down the line
I’m going to try to swing you up into my saddle
And then we’ll run but you’ll think we’re flyin’
Honey, don’t just stand there lookin’ like this dream will never end
Honey, let me introduce you to my redneck friend
I said, “Honey, let me introduce you to my redneck friend”
