Subject: Randy Newman-Rednecks
This was requested from an individual so I though i would also post it to
nevada. This is basically a piano song (most Newman songs are), but I think
the chords are pretty close. I apologize for any mistakes, but this is my
first posting of music. I hope to do many more.
Jeff H.
Rednecks--Randy Newman
From--Good 'Ole Boys
Intro:
Em7 G(add A)/B Em7
Last night I saw Lester Maddox on a TV show
Em7 G(add A)/B Em7
with some smart-ass New York Jew.
Em7 G(add A)/B A7/C#
And the Jew laughed at Lester Maddox
C/D Gsus4/D G
and the audience laughed at Lester Maddox too.
Em7 G(add A)/B Em7
Well, he may be a fool, but he's our fool.
Em7 G(add A)/B A7/C#
If they think they're better than him, they're wrong.
Em7 Em7/D C A7/C#
So I went to the park and I took some paper along
C/D Gsus4/D G
and that's where I made this song.
Verse 1:
G D7 G D7
We talk real funny down here.
G D7 G D7
We drink too much and we laugh too loud.
G D/F# Em7
We're too dumb to make it in no Northern town,
A7 C/D G D7
and we're keepin' the niggers down.
G D7 G D7
We got no-necked oilmen from Texas,
G D7 G D7
good ol' boys from Tennessee,
G D/F# Em7
college men from L.S.U.
G D/F# Em7
Went in dumb, come out dumb too.
G D/F# Em7
Hustlin' 'round Atlanta in their alligator shoes.
G D/F# Em7
Gettin' drunk ev'ry weekend at the barbuques,
A7 C/D G
and they're keepin' the niggers down.
CHORUS:
G C G C
We're Rednecks, we're Rednecks,
G D7 Em7 C7
and we don't know our ass from a hole in the ground.
G D7 G D7
We're Rednecks, we're Rednecks,
A7 C/D G
and we're are keeping the niggers down.
(last time only--slowly)
E7 A7 C/D G
We are keepin' the niggers down.
Verse 2:
Now your Northern nigger's a Negro
You see he's got his dignity
Down here we're too ignorant to realize
That the North has set the nigger free.
Yes, he's free to be put in a cage in Harlem in New York City
And he's free to be put in a cage on the South side of Chicago and
the West side
And he's free to be put in a cage in Hough in Cleveland
And he's free to be put in a cage in East St. Louis
And he's free to be put in a cage in Fillmore in San Francisco
And he's free to be put in a cage in Roxbury in Boston.
They're gatherin' 'em up from miles around,
Keepin' the niggers down.
(CHORUS)

Subject: CRD: Short People by Randy Newman
This song is by Randy Newman. I'm not sure about the album name.
Great great lyrics. I heard that when Randy was in Italy he was attacked
by someone who took the lyrics too personally.
If someone knows more about this story, please tell me about it.
Meanwhile here are the lyrics and chords. Any corrections and stuff will
be fairly welcome.
Gil.
