You Can't Hide Redneck
by Tracy Lawrence



Well, Billy Joe McAlester junior showed up at the reunion
Clean cut, shaved, decked out in Armani's best
In perfect spoken English, he said, 'Now days I go by William'
And he talked about his new life and money he'd made out West

And he tried his hardest not to be that old boy we all new
'Til he pulled out that Earnhardt wallet on that chain hooked to his belt loop

You can't hide redneck 'neath a three piece suit
No starched white collar is gonna keep it from bleeding through
Yeah, you might as well forget it, it's gonna find it's way out
No, you can't hide redneck, you might as well be proud

Well, the last we all seen of Sandy, she'd moved up to Boston
Law school paid off made her a Federal judge
Oh and Scotty had to go and ask her
If she still hates John since she lost him
She said, 'John who, oh, yeah, no, I don't hold a grudge'

And her honor stayed as professional as long as she could
Then she tied one on and let into John, just like we all knew she would

Oh, you can't hide redneck behind a big old job
A big old cherry wood desk sure ain't no camouflage
Yeah, you might as well forget it, it's gonna find it's way out
Oh, you can't hide redneck

No, you can't hide redneck in a big old grouch
You're gonna blow our cover, can't keep us from getting loud
Yeah, you might as well forget it, it's gonna find it's way out
No, you can't hide redneck, you might as well be proud
Might as well be proud
