which reminds me

a friend of mine has just returned from a trip to Texas, where he says there's this Toby Keith song called American Ride that's a complete ripoff of St. Stephen! My brain is exploding at the thought.

well...

cc posted one of his songs...

and then his fans emerged.

Yeah, I know Johnny Paycheck had the hit, but I like the songwriters.

And this IS the freeform topic...

Johnny Paycheck sang it

How did David Allan Coe become a topic here? Johnny Paycheck gained notoriety with his cover of Coe's song back in the 80's

and besides...

he wrote Take This Job and Shove It, which is on the short list of great songs of the 20th Century. And alas is no less relevant today than when it was written...

that's what I thought...

my favorite of his is You Never Even Call Me By My Name, which is actually Steve Goodman's if the lyrics are to be believed, but just like he says it's the perfect country song!

"I was drunk the day that Mama got out of prison..."
