The Lyrics

I originally submitted this over 2 years ago under the title "Hippie From Mississippi" under the psuedonym RED NECK MOTHER, before I started using my stage name of Dee Range. The original version can be found here: http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/merlehaggard1.shtml. This new version has been modified quite a bit. For anybody that read and commented on the original version, I would appreciate your opinion if this is better or worse.
I don't smoke marijuana 'less I got some
I've never rolled a joint in my sleep
I've never cussed a copper inside a courthouse
And I hardly ever make love to cows or sheep

I'm a red-neck hippie from Mississippi
Indoor plumbin' is a bottle or empty can
Where gonorrhea is a family tradition
And for most of us third grade was a five year plan


We can throw a party over damn near nothin'
Gettin' drunk when your kid's potty trained
But last night Junior had a relapse
And so 8 long years went down the frikkin' drain

I'm a red neck hippie from Mississippi
Where cows and sheep run scared all across my ranch
Kissin' our cousins is a life long tradition
And our fam'ly tree don't even have a single branch

CSI has trouble here in Mississippi
They find dead bodies but can't figure out the name
'Cos dental records here are non-existent
And everyone's DNA's exactly the same

I'm a red neck hippie from Mississippi
It's hot as hell but we don't give a damn
Since our definition of relative humidity
Is the sweat drippin' offa you onto yer sister Pam

That's Jackson, Mississippi, USA

Wow - did I miss the return of Dee Range? Or did you just slip back in here unannounced? All I know of the original is the title, unfortunately, but that didn't stop me from enjoying this more than I probably should have. Full of highlights, but I'll name a few: the first line, Junior's relapse, CSI's two challenges, and "relative humidity."

Thanks, Jack, it's good to sit here and be back in touch with friends again, after my self-inposed exile in the mountains this summer. I needed the break, but really miss this place, with all the laughter it brings to me daily.
