Unlike his most successful solo hits, the new duo, which became known as “Moe and Joe,” focused more on comedy and novelty songs. Many of these songs, including “Just Good Ol ‘Boys”, came up with the language. In this song, it’s about two friends, two naughty rednecks, who talk about their incidents of drunkenness and habitual disorders, apart from that, they’re good boys “, that is to say, that despite their reputation, they are not really that bad and that their actions are nothing more than harmless mischief. (Crazy Rednecks)





Moe Bandy And Joe Stampley – Just Good Ol’ Boys Lyrics

Well, I’ve been kicked out of might near every bar around
I’ve been locked up for drivin’ a hundred and twenty through town
Well, I’ve been shot at and cut with a knife
For messing around with another mans wife
But other than that we ain’t nothing, just good ol’ boys
I threw my boss out a window and got fired from my last job
Hot-wired a city truck and turned it over in the Mayor’s yard
Well I beat my brother-in-law half to death
I lost twenty bucks on his football bet
But other than that we ain’t nothing, just good ol’ boys
Good ol’ boys, we’re all the same
Ain’t no way we’ll ever change
Mean no harm by the things we do
Or the trouble that we get into
Other than a wild hair once in a while
We can’t help it, it’s just our style
And good ol’ boys is all we’ll ever be
I got an alimony payment that’s six weeks overdue
I got caught with a trunk full of bootleg out-a-state booze
I hocked my wife’s diamond ring last June
Bought me an outboard Evinrude
But other than that we ain’t nothin’, just good ol’ boys
Good ol’ boys, we’re all the same
Ain’t no way we’ll ever change
Mean no harm by the things we do
Or the trouble that we get into
Other than a wild hair once in a while
We can’t help it, it’s just our style
Good ol’ boys is all we’ll ever be
Good ol’ boys is all we’ll ever be
