Do you remember
Back in nineteen sixty-six?
Country Jesus, hillbilly blues,
That's where I learned my licks.
Oh, from coast to coast and line to line
In every county there,
I'm talkin' 'bout that outlaw X
Is cuttin' through the air.

Anywhere, y'all,
Everywhere, y'all,
I heard it, I heard it,
I heard it on the X.

We can all thank Doctor be
