Just the good ol' boys Never meanin' no harm Beats all you never saw Been in trouble with the law Since the day they was born
Staightenin' the curves Flattenin' the hills Someday the mountain might get 'em But the law never will
Makin' their way The only way they know how That's just a little bit more Than the law will allow
Makin' their way The only way they know how yeah That's just a little bit more Than the law will allow
I'm a good ol' boy You know my momma loves me But she don't understand They keep a showin' my hands And not my face on TV

Barry from Sauquoit, NyAnd from the 'For What It's Worth' department, it was a fellow-Highwayman that knocked Waylon out of the top spot on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart, Willie Nelson with "On The Road Again".
Barry from Sauquoit, NyThe song reached #2 on the Canadian RPM Country Singles chart... As stated in the next post below it peaked at #1 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart; it was also the seventeenth in a string of twenty-one Top 10 records on the Country chart, and eleven of those Top 10 records would reach #1.
Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 26th 1979, the CBS-TV series "The Dukes of Hazzard" debut on national TV... The show ran from 1979 to 1985 with 146 episodes (Only Denver 'Uncle Jesse' Pyle and Sorrell 'Boss Hogg' Booke appeared in all 146 episodes)... And on September 17th, 1980 "Theme from The Dukes of Hazzard" entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on December 7th, 1980 it peaked at #21 (for 2 weeks) and spent 23 weeks on the Top 100... On October 26th, 1980 it reached #1 (for 1 week) on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart... R.I.P. Mr. Jennings (1937 - 2002), Mr. Pyle (1920 - 1997), and Mr. Booke (1930 - 1994).
Pennell from Kansas City, MoI love the both versions....but the slap in the face of 'You know my momma loved me, but she don't understand they keep showing my hands and not my face on TV' is a classic as well!!!
John from Nashville, TnThis song was Waylon's highest charted pop single and first (and only) million-seller.
