(I'm Just A) Redneck In A Rock And Roll Bar    (1977)

Well hello, Boogie Palace, I'm sittin' here alone
Listening to the music of electric saxophones
Now, there ain't no sexy dresses
And there ain't no beehive hair
Just boys who look like girls
Who look like boys, who look like Cher

I'm just a redneck in a Rock 'n' Roll bar
I miss the fiddle and a steel guitar
They're starin' at me like a bug in a jar
I'm just a redneck in a Rock 'n' Roll bar

I stopped in here to have a beer to ask some gal to dance
But, I been waitin' patient now and I ain't had the chance
'Cause they ain't played any waltzes, nothing like a Texas swing
And with no belly rubbin' music, how in the hell can I do my thing?

I'm just a redneck in a Rock 'n' Roll bar
I miss the fiddle and a steel guitar
They're starin' at me like a bug in a jar
I'm just a redneck in a Rock 'n' Roll bar

Well goodbye, Boogie Palace, I'm a gettin' outta here
Back to Country music and back to Lone Star beer
Where the women look like women and they dress so you can tell
And the men are good ol' boys just drinkin' beer and raisin' hell

I'm just a redneck in a Rock 'n' Roll bar
I miss the fiddle and a steel guitar
They're starin' at me like a bug in a jar
I'm just a redneck in a Rock 'n' Roll bar

I'm just a redneck in a Rock 'n' Roll bar
I miss the fiddle and a steel guitar
They're starin' at me like a bug in a jar
I'm just a redneck in a Rock 'n' Roll bar
