I've been drinkin' my whiskey, you've been snortin' cocaine. I've been listenin' to the Grand Ol Opry and you've been listenin' to Soul Train. You said the Allman Brothers Band wasn't like the Rolling Stones. Well, you can give your ass to Mick Jagger and leave my ass alone! You got Rock and Roll fever and you will till the day you die!
David Allan Coe own words on racism: « "Anyone that (...) says I'm a racist is full of shit," Coe says, adding that the slur entered his vocabulary in prison, where he received encouragement to write the songs that would make up Penitentiary Blues from a man in the next cell: R&B singer Screamin' Jay Hawkins. "I was one of about fifteen white boys . . . and that word didn't mean nothin'. I used to have to fight my way outta everywhere because I hung around black guys." » (from Rolling Stone: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/coe-revisits-penitentiary-20050714)
Xucatlan, thank you for your answer :) I have just ordered my first hard copy of a DAC album, waiting for it to arrive this week. Last week I found out that DAC is the man behind "Take this job and shove it", which I earlier thought was originally written by Johnny Paycheck. I have more respect for the man after realising he has written songs for many of the greatest, including Willie Nelson!
@AutumnX so you'd whup. his ass huh? you hear about one show DAC gave where this A-hole up front kept talking shit & throwing bottles onstage DAC told the guy "you throw1 more bottle up here & I'll kick your ass". Guy did & got his ass kicked then sued & not. for assault he claimed loss of business judge asked him what he did guy says he's a Karate instructor & it really looks bad him getting his ass kicked by some redneck/hillbilly in a bar DAC either beat him again in the courtroom or was restrained from by bailiffs either way he ain't just bragging about winning every fight he's fought
