Redneck Paradise

Album: Rebel Soul (2012)
  • I like moonshine whiskey
    I like home made wine
    I don’t look for greener grass
    Home grown suits me just fine
    Welcome to my shanty
    Drop by anytime
    I bet you’ll like my Redneck Paradise

    Redneck Paradise
    It’s a hole in the wall kinda small but the people are real nice
    And folks in here they’s free and clear
    To drink beer and dance all night, that’s right
    And no one’s uptight in Redneck Paradise

    Now I might get a little tipsy
    I might be past my prime
    But pour some Jim Beam whiskey
    And I’ll show you a real big time
    You don’t need reservations
    Drop by anytime
    The sun is shinin’ in Redneck Paradise

    And the things we like don’t cost a lot of money
    Good foot stompin’ music gets us by
    Measure up our wealth in friends and family
    We’re gonna hit them honky tonks tonight

    Down in Redneck Paradise
    It’s a hole in the wall kinda small just look for the red light
    And have no fear you’re free and clear to get wild and rock all night
    We don’t bite
    'Cause we get down right in Redneck Paradise

    Down in Redneck Paradise
    It’s a hole in the wall kinda small but the people are real, real nice
    And when you’re here you’re free and clear to do what most ever you like, all night
    So rock on through to Redneck Paradise

    Down in Redneck Paradise
    It’s a hole in the wall kinda small but the people are real nice
    And when you’re here you’re free and clear to drink beer and dance all night, that’s right
    'Cause no one’s uptight in Redneck Paradise
    So rock on through to Redneck Paradise Writer/s: ERIC YOUNG, JASON ADAM YOUNG, MARLON YOUNG, ROBERT J RITCHIE
