Barsnake,

"I remember when we first started chasing after Osama in the mountains of Afghanistan, it was suggested we got the wrong boys over there. We should have sent a bunch of Bubbas with beer guts, cammo tee-shirts, overalls, a 1960's ford pickup, and Red Boned Coon Hound over there to flush him out. They's have his ass by night fall."

"Wonder how J. Cash got away with putting his name on this?"

He just changed a few of the words around like the 'authors' of the other versions did and put his name to his 'new song' as they did.

Sambeau,

"A good friend of mine is from County Wexford. He worships JC."

That's not surprising. Just about the only country in the world outside the USA where Country Music is popular is Ireland. There's just no accounting for the musical tastes of a sizeable (if somewhat diminishing) section of one's fellow countrymen.

Thanks, LH. The first 2 are real close. The 3rd was different until the melody kicked in.

Barsnake,

Much as I'd love to hum it to you over the forum the links below might interest you. The last link is closest to how I'm accustomed to hearing it sing.

Here's one which alittle faster and higher pitched (I get confused with minor and major key stuff) than the original Irish version but follows the same pattern.

http://www.contemplator.com/folk3/samhall.html

And a New Zealand version which is a bit closer except for the last line of each verse where the tune is totally different.

http://folksong.org.nz/davylows/

And finally another version which has more or less as the Irish Sam Hall is sung to (although it slightly fast and just a little high pitched).

Grits: You can subsitute any rice and most pasta dishes with grits. Boil grits in water with about 2 tbls of dry white wine and some garlic. At the end of the boil add heavy cream. Very nice.

About as country as I get is the Jayhawks, but it is hard to deny JC's greatness if you have ever actually sat down and listened to his stuff. A good friend of mine is from County Wexford. He worships JC.

I don't know where the anti Bud 'n mullet crowd are from, but the original American settlers from about Penn. to GA. were predominately Scottish or Irish. So, if your you have any Irish or Scot blood, you may have a little more in common with a redneck than you think.

Early one morning while making the rounds,
Took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down.
Whent right home and I went to bed,
Stuck that lovin' .44 beneath my head.

Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun,
Took a shot of cocaine and away I run.
Made a good run but I ran too slow.
They overtook me down in Juarez Mexico.

Late in the hot joint takin' the pills,
In walked the sheriff from Jericho Hill.
He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown. You're the dirty heck that shot your woman down.

Said yes, oh yes my name is Willy Lee,
And if you've got the warrant just a-read it to me.
Shot her down because she made me sore.
I thought I was her daddy but she had five more.

Oh, I have no problem making fun of rednecks. I'm chock full of disdain for the working class (not to mention the middle class and the upper class...). I never claimed to be a socialist, tho.

and search for "Jacobites"

I think that song is always set to a major-key variant of "Ye Jacobites by name". You can hear the melody on this page...

"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
--Hermann Goering
