Much like the previous post about White Trash, what’s Christmas without the song which actually is supposed to be the epitome of that? A tune about dysfunctional families, and what many would say is a typical Christmas day spent carving turkey, watching ballgames, mixing up your favorite beverages, and a whole host of other shenanigans.
You know the song I’m talking about. Personally I love it, not only the melody, but even from a writer’s perspective. I relish the well written lyrics because I SEE the scenes in my head as I wail along. Yes, I sing to this song, and loud too. I’m alone when I do, much to the relief of family and friends.
One way or the other, Robert Earl Keen sure knows his rednecks.
For your enjoyment, (and mine!) turn the volume UP!
Now, if you don’t find that catchy, you might need to have yourself a sip of that Bloody Mary – you know you want one!
