Oh, Martin, honey, now you've got me going...

Was you thinking of this?

"Well I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got runned over by a damned old train ..."

I love so many c&w lyrics... they can really get the dysfunctional 
relationship thing down so well...

"Well I'm gonna hire a wino
to decorate our home
so you'll feel more at ease there
and you won't need to roam...
we'll take out the dining-room table
and put a bar along the wall...
and a neon sign to point the way to our bathroom down the hall..."

anyway, here's one featuring which nods toward Pabst:
"Red Necks, White Socks, and Blue Ribbon Beer"


>A few examples:
>"She's actin' single, I'm drinkin' doubles""You're the reason our kids are
>ugly, li'l darlin'"
>and the country chorus to end all country choruses cos it contains
>*all* the themes of country:
>"Love, Death, Divorce, Prison, Alcohol, Rivers an' Traayyyyyyns"
