Redneck Woman – Song Lyric Sunday – Singing About Another Singer

Today for SLS, Jim Adams, (A Unique Title For Me), has asked for songs from bands/groups that mention other singers/bands in their song. There are quite a lot of them, which surprised me.

Thanks for the prompt, Jim! 🙂

“Redneck Woman”, by Gretchen Wilson, was released as a single from her album, “Here For the Party”, in 2004. It was written by John Rich and Gretchen Wilson, and is on the Epic label.

From Wiki:

The music video includes the following guest stars: Big and Rich, Tanya Tucker, Hank Williams, Jr. and Kid Rock, all of whom are name-dropped in the song. The music video was ranked #11 on CMT’s 100 Greatest Videos in 2008.

Redneck Woman — Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, George Strait, Charlie Daniels/The Charlie Daniels Band, Tanya Tucker, Hank Williams, Jr.

[Verse 1]
Well, I ain’t never been the Barbie Doll type
No, I can’t swig that sweet Champagne
I’d rather drink beer all night
In a tavern
Or in a honky-tonk
Or on a four-wheel-drive tailgate

Oh, I’ve got posters on my wall
Of Skynyrd, Kid and Strait
Some people look down on me
But I don’t give a rip
I’ll stand barefooted in my own front yard
With a baby on my hip

[Chorus 1]
Cause I’m a redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my raisin’
I say “hey, y’all” and “yee-haw”

And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long

And I know all the words to every Charlie Daniels song
So here’s to all my sisters
Out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “hell yeah” from the redneck girls like me
Hell yeah
(Hell yeah!)

Victoria’s Secret
Well, their stuff’s real nice
Oh, but I can buy the same damn thing
On a Walmart shelf half-price
And still look sexy (sexy)
Just as sexy as those models on TV

No, I don’t need no designer tag
To make my man want me
You may think I’m trashy
A little too hard core
But in my neck of the woods
I’m just the girl next door

[Chorus 2]
Hey, I’m a redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my raising
I say “hey, y’all” and “yee-haw”

And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long

And I know all the words to every Tanya Tucker song
So here’s to all my sisters
Out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “hell yeah” from the redneck girls like me
Hell yeah
(Hell yeah!)

I’m a redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my raising
I say “hey, y’all” and “yee-haw”

And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long

And I know all the words to every Ol’ Bocephus song
So here’s to all my sisters
Out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “hell yeah” from the redneck girls
Like me

[Outro]
(Hell yeah!)
Hell yeah!
(Hell yeah!)
Hell yeah!
(Hell yeah!)
I said hell yeah!

This next song is by Jana Stanfield. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her on several occasions, and is a wonderful and friendly person. She performs all over the world, and is a Keynote Speaker.

Bonus Song:

“U B U , I M E”, by Jana Stanfield, is on her 1994 album, “The Trick is to Learn to Enjoy the Ride”

In this song, she is writing a letter to James Taylor.

 

So many people I would rather be, people smarter, more talented than me
James Taylor, for example, next to him I couldn’t hold a candle
Found James’ address in a book, opened up my heart and with a hand that shook
I wrote “Dear James, I want to be like you, please write me back and tell me what to do”
Well i checked the mailbox every day, waited for a letter but it never came
He sends letters his own way. Checked my answering machine and it was sweet baby James

CHORUS:
B.S.U.R., S.U.C., S.I.M., I.M.
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E
WE’RE EXACTLY WHO WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E

I started thinking as I wrote this song, how cool it’d be if James could sing along
What a brainstorm it would be so fun, a duet with James Taylor on my new album
What if he invited me to join his tour and be his opening act around the world
My head would swell to over twice its size if he would feature me on Saturday night live

Then I’d be a megastar, I’d shop at Walmart in a chauffered car
I could get lost in this fantasy, but James’ voice brings me back to reality

Chorus:
B.S.U.R., S.U.C., S.I.M., I.M.
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E
WE’RE EXACTLY WHO WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E

Just in case this song is a success
I’d better get my answers all prepared
When a thousand young girls are calling me for advice
This is the message they’ll hear

Exploring – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – xp

Standard

Exploring – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – xp

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 27/19

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “xp.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “xp”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Today for SOCS, we have the letters ‘xp’ to explore. We can write whatever we think of using these letters, or words that have the letters in them.

I want to thank Linda G. Hill, for continually motivating us to stretch our imagination by suggesting all kinds of interesting prompts.

To join in, and see other entries, just click the above link. 🙂

Do you like to explore? I do. There’s all kinds of ways to go exploring, such as taking trips to interesting places, taking hikes, or even exploring caves.

For me, I’ve not done much of those, but I do like exploring locally. I go exploring most every Friday and weekend in the summer time…I go to yard sales. It’s fun to explore all the things people put out for sale in their front yards.

In the past, I’ve enjoyed exploring the new towns we’d moved to, by driving around getting to know where things are, and going along new roads. Most times I’d need a map for the first few times, but eventually I learned my way around.

It’s also fun to go exploring sitting right here at home, using your computer of choice. When you are curious about something, just look it up on the internet/google to find out all about things. The more you look, the more you find, and you could end up exploring for hours.

The word explore reminds me of a song (as most everything does).

Jana Stanfield has this one called, “I’m Not Lost, I’m Exploring.”

Here’s the song, and my remembrance of meeting her.

I’ve had the pleasure of attending 3 concerts of the lovely Jana Stanfield. She hails from a small NM town not far from here, and every so often schedules a musical performance here. The venues are usually small, and friendly. The ones I saw were at a church, a swimming pool outdoor area, and a private ranch/restaurant. In fact, at the restaurant, Ms Stanfield sat at our table, to chat, and had  a BBQ supper with my daughter and me before her performance. She is a great humanitarian and motivational speaker, and travels the world speaking her message.

She describes her songs/music as “Heavy Mental”,  and music with a message, as she always has a positive message to deliver, with humor. I find that is so true. She is booked as a keynote speaker all around the world, where she is also an advocate for humanitarian and peace endeavors. If you ever get a chance to attend one of her concerts, you won’t be disappointed.

Song Lyric Sunday – Courage

Standard

Song Lyric Sunday – Courage

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/3/17

***

Today, for SLS, Helen has asked us to consider songs about courage. Thanks, Helen, for all the interesting prompts you provide.

There are lots of songs I found that deal with courage, bravery, and standing up for what you believe in. The one I chose today, is by a wonderful artist, Jana Stanfield.

I’ve been to three of her concerts, and have talked with her. She even sat and had supper with my daughter and me before one of them. She is a great humanitarian and motivational speaker, and travels the world speaking her message. She says her music is ‘heavy mental’, and is ‘music with a message’, and I find this is so true.

“If I Were Brave”, by Jana Stanfield, was written by Jana Stanfield, and Jimmy Scott, in 1998. This song along with many more beautiful songs, can be found on her CD, “Brave Faith”.

Jana Stanfield – If I Were Brave Lyrics

Artist: Jana Stanfield

Album: Brave Faith

“If I Were Brave” – Jana Stanfield

What would I do, if I knew that I could not fail?
If I believed, would the wind always fill up my sail?
How far would I go? What could I achieve,
trusting the hero in me?

If I were brave, I’d walk the razor’s edge,
where fools and dreamers dare to tread.
I’d never lose faith, even when losing my way.
What step would I take today, if I were brave?

What would I do today, if I were brave?
What would I do today, if I were brave?

What if we’re all meant to do what we secretly dream?
What would you ask, if you knew you could have anything?
Like the mighty oak sleeps, in the heart of a seed,
are there miracles in you and me?

If I were brave, I’d walk the razor’s edge,
where fools and dreamers dare to tread.
I’d never lose faith, even when losing my way.
What step would I take today, if I were brave?

What would I do today, if I were brave?
What would I do today, if I were brave?

If I refuse to listen to the voice of fear,
would the voice of courage whisper in my ear?

If I were brave, I’d walk the razor’s edge,
where fools and dreamers dare to tread.
I’d never lose faith, even when losing my way.
What step would I take today, if I were brave?

What would I do today, if I were brave?
What would I do today, if I were brave?
