Lyrics

Hubbard

He was born in Oklahoma
His wife's name's is Betty Lou Thelma Liz
And he's not responsible for what he'd doin'
'Cause his mother made him what he is

And it's up against the wall, redneck mother
Mother who has raised her son so well
He's thirty-four and drinkin' in a honky tonk
Just kicking hippies' asses and raising hell

Well, he sure does like his Falstaff beer
Chases it down with that Wild Turkey liquor
Drives a fifty-seven Jimmy pickup truck
He's got a gun rack and a "goat ropers need love too" sticker

And it's up against the wall, redneck mother
Mother who has raised her son so well
He's thirty-four and drinkin' in a honky tonk
Just kicking hippies' asses and raising hell

M is for the mud flaps you got me for my pickup truck
O is for the oil I put on my hair
T is for T-bird
H is for hen
E is for Einstein's theory of relativity and
R is for (you redneck mother)

And it's up against the wall, redneck mother
Mother who has raised her son so well
He's thirty-four and drinkin' in a honky tonk
Just kicking hippies' asses and raising hell

It's up against the wall, redneck mother
Mother who has raised her son so well
He's thirty-four and drinkin' in a honky tonk
Just kicking hippies' asses and raising hell

Hey, way out here in San Francisc-aye-oo
(You redneck mother you)
