    Default Which Artist/Song Makes You Want To Be A Hillbilly?

    So I was on a big ol' honkin' Creedence kick today and it made me think of all the Southern-flavored music that for some reason resonates with me as strongly as anything I listen to, despite the fact that I wish Sherman's March to the Sea could be a never-ending affair.

    Southerners annoy the piss out of me, we should have let them bounce out of the Union, and every time I hear a Southern accent I immediately think whoever's speaking is borderline retarded. But at the same time, a lot of my all-time favorite musicians and/or songs are ones I love because they conjure up some weird desire to sit on a dirty front porch, sipping moohshine, tending to a farm, keeping the Confederacy in my heart, hating negroes, and fucking my family members (more so).

    Anyone else know what I'm talking about? What artists or individual songs make you relive what it was like growing up poor in the South even though you never did? And anyone that says Sweet Home Alabama should be set upon en masse.

    It was all that I could do to keep from cryin'
    Sometimes it seems so useless to remain
    You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
    You never even call me by my name.

    You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings
    And you don't have to call me Charlie Pride.
    You don't have to call me Merle Haggard, anymore.
    Even though your on my fightin' side.

    And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
    And I never minded standin' in the rain.
    You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
    You never even call me by my name.

    I've heard my name a few times in your phone book
    I've seen it on signs where I've laid
    But the only time I know, I'll hear David Allan Coe
    Is when Jesus has his final judgement day.

    Well, a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song
    and he told me it was the perfect country and western song
    I wrote him back a letter and told him it was NOT the perfect
    country and western song because he hadn't said anything about
    Momma, or trains, or trucks, or prison, or gettin' drunk.
    Well, he sat down and wrote another verse to the song and he sent
    it to me and after reading it, I realized that my friend had written
    the perfect country and western song. And I felt obliged to include it
    on this album. The last verse goes like this here:

    Well, I was drunk the day my Mom got outta prison.
    And I went to pick her up in the rain.
    But, before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
    She got runned over by a damned old train.

    So I'll hang around as long as you will let me
    And I never minded standin' in the rain. No,
    You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
    You never even call me, I wonder why you don't call me
    Why don't you ever call me by my name.

    I like that Magic Carpet Ride song. I don't know if it's Southern, but it sounds that way.

    Sweet Home Alabama is an awesome song too.

    The Black Crowes and My Morning Jacket sometimes make me want to sit on the porch sippin' Lynchburg Lemonade and lightin' farts.

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    And Supre picks the only song almost as generic as Sweet Home Alabama.

    <-- Hillbilly by blood, not relation. Don't need no song or artist.

    "By blood, not relation." I don't understand what that even means, beyond the fact that you're not a step-hillbilly or a hillbilly-in-law, neither of which would count for actual hillbilly status anyway. Where'd you grow up, how many siblings did you have, and how many Hank Williams Sr. songs do you know by heart?

    Never possessed a syringe in my life, so your claim means dick-all.

    Who's getting mad? All I'm saying is your claim that you're hillbilly "by blood, not by relation" is semantically not verified by your follow-up claim that you have family who are hillbillies (or just hill people, like Lothar?). Blood relations, FOI.

    And all of that is irrelevant to the point of this thread. If you have such familial ties to those Southern screwheads, gimme an artist or song that makes you misty thinking about their backwards asses. I mean, I'm assuming you yourself feel pretty distant from that lifestyle that you share blood and not relations with, right?

    So why did it take longer for it to get mentioned? And you would know this right?

    Tom, if anything, I would think that my litany of posts makes it absolutely clear that I'm nothing if not a bigot.

    Your Cheatin' Heart, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, any old Ramblin' Jack Elliott or Woody Guthrie, Jimmie Rodgers songs. I love me some old hillbilly music. Yodeling and twanging all night. I come from mountain folk.
