Lyrics that remind you of the Dukes of Hazzard


Recommended Posts

What lyrics (doesn't have to be whole songs) remind you of characters or events in Hazzard County?

-------------------------------------------

One day I looked into my rear view mirror

And comin' up from behind

There was a Georgia State policeman

And a hundred dollar fine

He looked me in the eye as he was writin' me up

He said "Driver, you been flyin'.

The ninety-five was the route you were on

It was not the speed limit sign."

Gimme Three Steps - Lynyrd Skynyrd

That whole song reminds me Oh Bo Duke when he is with a lady. I can picture something that happening in Hazzard...

(Allen Collins - Ronnie VanZant)

I was cutting the rug

Down at a place called The Jug

With a girl named Linda Lu

When in walked a man

With a gun in his hand

And he was looking for you know who.

He said, "Hey there fellow,

With the hair colored yellow,

Watcha tryin' to prove?

'Cause that's my woman there

And I'm a man who cares

And this might be all for you."

I was scared and fearing for my life.

I was shakin' like a leaf on a tree.

'Cause he was lean and mean,

Big and bad, Lord,

Pointin' that gun at me.

I said, "Wait a minute, mister,

I didn't even kiss her.

Don't want no trouble with you.

And I know you don't owe me

But I wish you'd let me

Ask one favor from you."

(Chorus)

"Won't you give me three steps,

Gimme three steps mister,

Gimme three steps towards the door?

Gimme three steps

Gimme three steps mister,

And you'll never see me no more."

(Chorus)

Well the crowd cleared away

And I began to pray

And the water fell on the floor.

And I'm telling you son,

Well, it ain't no fun

To be lookin' at a forty-four.

Well he turned and screamed at Linda Lu

And that's the break I was looking for.

And you could hear me screaming a mile away

As I was headed out towards the door.

(Chorus)

well I guess this one has some 'Dukes elements' in it.

In the mind of John J. Blanchard

by Tommy Shane Steiner

Fly fishin';

Workin' on that Firebird engine.

Runnin' 99 proof moonshine cross that county line.

3, 2, 1 and ignition: off on some space shuttle mission,

Playin' QB for the Cowboy's:

Getting high on the crowd noise and the bright lights,

'Cause deep inside, things were rockin' in the mind,

Of John J. Blanchard.

Alabama's "High Cotton" reminds me of the Dukes. Can't think of the lyrics off hand....

Most Waylon Jennings stuff. :wink:

George Jones' "White Lightning"

Well North-a-Carolina

way back in the hills

lived my ol' pappy

and he had 'em a still

He brewed white lightning

till the sun went down

then he'd fill 'em a jug

and he'd pass it around

Mighty, mighty pleasin'

Pappy's corn squeezin'

whooooshhhhhhhh....White Lightning!

Well the G-men

T-men

Revenuers too

Searchin' for the place where he made his brew

They were lookin'

tryin' to book 'em

But my pappy kepta cookin'

whooooooooshhhhhhh....White Lightning!

I always thought Montgomery Gentry's "Hillbilly Shoes" reminded me of the Dukes. Perhaps it's their attitude. I find a lot of Montgomery Gentry songs reminding me of the Dukes or of Hazzard...especially from their first CD.

Hillbilly Shoes

I was there when the men came, told us all the news

Father forgive them for they know not what they do

'Til they walk a while, a country mile

In my Hillbilly Shoes

You want to judge me by the whiskey on my breath

You think you know me but you ain't seen nothin' yet

'Til you walk a while, a country mile

In my Hillbilly Shoes

In my Hillbilly Shoes

You can work all day in the muck and the mire

Dance a little jig then stomp by the fire

Ain't too much these boots can't do

Might even kick a little sense into you

Well I'm goin' up Cripple Creek, going at a run

Going up Cripple Creek to have a little fun

Lawman say's they found some tracks

People saw 'em leaving but they never come back

Oh, you don't know me

You don't know, you don't know, you don't know

'Til you walk a while, a country mile

In my Hillbilly Shoes

In my Hillbilly Shoes.

(By Montgomery Gentry)
