The song would reach number one of the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles, on September 22, 1979, for a week and staying 11 weeks on lists. In the Canadian RPM Country Tracks lists, I reach position number 8. It would be the first and only number one as a duo.

 

The song would be included in the duo’s first album, Just Good Ol ‘Boys (Columbia 1979), the album would reach the 11th position of the US Country charts.

Unlike his most successful solo hits, the new duo, which became known as “Moe and Joe,” focused more on comedy and novelty songs. Many of these songs, including “Just Good Ol ‘Boys”, came up with the language. In this song, it’s about two friends, two naughty rednecks, who talk about their incidents of drunkenness and habitual disorders, apart from that, they’re good boys “, that is to say, that despite their reputation, they are not really that bad and that their actions are nothing more than harmless mischief. (Crazy Rednecks)

Moe Bandy And Joe Stampley – Just Good Ol’ Boys 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
