Jackson Browne, “Redneck Friend”

Jackson Browne, “Redneck Friend” from the album For Everyman, 1973. A great album! See, back then we were all hippies and all hippies hated rednecks. Now you supposed to be a redneck who votes for Trump! In almost 50 years, we’ve managed to literally go backwards. Congratulations, Americans!

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
I may not have the answer, but I believe I got a plan

Honey you shake and I’ll rattle, and we’ll roll on down the line
And 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
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
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 and I’ll rattle and 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
Honey let me introduce you to my redneck friend

Honey you shake and I’ll rattle, and 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’
Now honey don’t just stand there
Lookin’ like this dream will never end
Honey let me introduce you to my redneck friend
