about

A song about the hijinx we used to get up to in the hinterland.

lyrics

What do you do in a redneck town?
Take the bottle and drink it down

We found ourselves in a crossroads city
Where the grass is brown and the air is shitty

Well what do you do when life gives you lemons?
Gin and juice in redneck heaven

Fill up a house with like-minded folks
Spend all your nights smokin' dope

Walk around in colourful caps
Smile at all the ignorant chaps

Go smash up the Starbucks sign
Do it when you're drunk on wine

That's just what you do in a redneck town

What do you do in a redneck town?
Take the bottle and drink it down

We'll make some tea with poppy seeds
And spend a week half asleep

Drinking plonk and feeling down
Wasted in this one horse town

Planting seeds and hatching schemes
Trying hard to make a scene

Poppin' pills and feelin' fine
Wasting all our precious time

Who'd'a thunk we'd never get far
Cougar hunting at the country bar

Soon enough we'd have to leave
Try our luck planting trees

But I know we'll miss that redneck town

What do you do in a redneck town?
Take the bottle and drink it down
