Redneck Ear Candy
©2015 Tom Arnold / Deadbeat Music

She lived that small town rancher’s dream
She was last year’s rodeo queen
In a sequined dress
On a bloodline breeding mare

She loved her Nashville country stars
The swooning songs with hot guitars
And he caught her ear
As the chorus came around

She played that red neck ear candy
Sung by an outlaw dandy
Who was so unlike
The wholesome boys she’d known

His songs were filled with danger
Broken hearts and long lost angels
And she fell in love
Like a million girls before

The smooth refrains and country churn
Gave his act the hottest burn
With the well placed licks
On his twanging red guitar

A kerchief tied around his neck
The silk brocade piped down his leg
To the snakeskin boots
Of a spangled country star

She played that red neck ear candy
Sung by an outlaw dandy
Who was so unlike
The wholesome boys she’d known

His songs were filled with danger
Broken hearts and long lost angels
And she fell in love
Like a million girls before

She landed a young CPA
Who’d helped her out on filing day
He was buttoned down
And always showed for work

She loved her three piece suited man
She squeezed him tight and held his hand
But her secret life
Was always with the band

She lived that red neck ear candy
Sung by an outlaw dandy
Who was so unlike
The wholesome boys she’d known

His songs were filled with danger
Broken hearts and long lost angels
And she fell in love
Like a million girls before

Yes she fell in love
Like a million girls before
