You Can't Hide Redneck
by Tracy Lawrence



Well, Billy Jo McAllister, Jr.
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 & money
He'd made out West
and he tried his hardest not to be
that ole boy we all knew
'til he pulled out that Earnhart wallet
on a chain hooked to his belt loop!

You can't hide redneck
"Neath a 3-piece suit.
No starch white collar
gonna keep it from bleedin' through!
Yea, you might as well forget it.
Its gonna find its way out.
Naw, you can't hide redneck....
might as well be proud!

Well the last we all seen of Sandy,
Shed 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 done lost him.
She said, "John who? Oh, yea...
No, I dont hold a grudge."
And Her Honor stayed as professional
As long as she could.
Then she tied on on and let into John
Just like we all knew she would!

Aw, you cant hide redneck
Behind a big ole job
A big ole cherrywood desk
Sho aint no camoflauge.
Yea you might as well forget it.
Its gonna find its way out.
Aw you cant hide redneck
No you cant hide redneck
in a big ole crowd.
You gonna blow our cover
Cant keep us from gettin loud.
Yea you might as well forget it
Its gonna find its way out
No you cant hide redneck
Mite as well be proud!
Mite as well be proud!
