I heard Hank Jr sing Knoxville Courthouse Blues on the radio the other day. Great song about him getting set up by a chick and he goes to jail for 10 years for it.

The Gourds-Cracklins

quote:

Them Navasota troopers ran me down
Escorted me right out of town
For cherry pickin' squirrels and feedin' dogs
And dreamin' of Jamaica in a fog
Yes I did yes I did


quote:

Them Mississippi state police chased me From Pascagoula all the way to Metarie
I robbed a federal bank with a rack of ribs
A jar of sauce some white bread and a bib
Yes I did yes I did


quote:

I was eatin' cracklins as the Feds were closin' in
They watched the water as my car went rollin' in
They dragged the river and notified my next of kin But brother pigs do fly and so can a man
When he's full of fried pork skins
