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.

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)
