Moe Bandy And Joe Stampley Just Good Ole Boy lyrics

 

Well, I've been kicked out of might near every bar around

I've been locked up for drivin' a hundred and twenty through town

Well, I've been shot at and cut with a knife

For messing around with another mans wife

But other than that we ain't nothing, just good ol' boys

I threw my boss out a window and got fired from my last job

Hot-wired a city truck and turned it over in the Mayor's yard

Well I beat my brother-in-law half to death

I lost twenty bucks on his football bet

But other than that we ain't nothing, just good ol' boys

Good ol' boys, we're all the same

Ain't no way we'll ever change

Mean no harm by the things we do

Or the trouble that we get into

Other than a wild hair once in a while

We can't help it, it's just our style

And good ol' boys is all we'll ever be

I got an alimony payment that's six weeks overdue

I got caught with a trunk full of bootleg out-a-state booze

I hocked my wife's diamond ring last June

Bought me an outboard Evinrude

But other than that we ain't nothin', just good ol' boys

Good ol' boys, we're all the same

Ain't no way we'll ever change

Mean no harm by the things we do

Or the trouble that we get into

Other than a wild hair once in a while

We can't help it, it's just our style

Good ol' boys is all we'll ever be

Good ol' boys is all we'll ever be
