Flatout

This song is by Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers and appears on the album Flatout (1990).

Introduction -
Kevin: Now Raymond, we're gonna do what ya calls here a h'authentic piece of folk Newfoundland material.
Ray: Now why is it authentic?
Kevin: Raymond, because of the instruments we use. We have here a rolling pin, thank you mudder, and I got here I got a hubcap, what I selected out of 45 hubcaps for tone and clarity. And I got a Class A spring steel copper coated door stop added on for effect.
Ray: Above all instruments, why did you choose a hubcap?
Kevin: Raymond, I am a hubcap player because my father before me was a hubcap player Raymond, and his father before him was a hubcap player Raymond, and in order to play a hubcap back in the 1930s, you had to be willing to grab on to the old spoke wheel, tire and all. So, give her, come on.

Flatout: Kevin Blackmore. 1988.
Well the first feller to it was a-dancing Dewey Hewitt,
If you wants to win a race there's more than one way to do it!
They said he was stunned but he knew how to cheat,
They never shot the gun but he was off like a streak
Flatout!
They never shot the gun but he was off like a streak!

Legs a flyin and the feet just a fryin' Taps smoking over his shoulder! FLATOUT
Judges never stopped him, they were on his side,
He slipped them a dozen beer, the boys took the bribe,
Slipped them a dozen beer, the boys took the bribe!

Well right after Dewey jumps skinny Brucie Skiffington!
Spittin' and a swearin 'cause he haven't got his sneakers on!
Grabbed his boots, grabbed his socks, then he ripped his trousers off,
When he started running well his shorts went up his crotch
Flatout!
When he started running well his shorts went up his crotch!

Legs a flyin and the feet just a fryin' Taps smoking over his shoulder! FLATOUT
Judges never stopped him, they were on his side,
He slipped them a dozen beer, the boys took the bribe,
Slipped them a dozen beer, the boys took the bribe!

Legs a flyin and the feet just a fryin'! Taps smoking over his shoulder!
Flatout
Dewey's fartin' got hard on the eyes, That's why Brucie didn't want to get behind,
That's why Brucie didn't want to get behind!

Percy Jenkins, Percy Jenkins he's the fastest man alive!
While Huey's drinkin' one well Percy could drink five!
Downed a two-four of beer and he was off like a streak,
But every half a mile he was stoppin' for a leak
Flatout
Every half a mile he was stoppin' for a leak!.

Legs a flyin and the feet just a fryin' Taps smoking over his shoulder! FLATOUT
Judges never stopped him, they were on his side,
He slipped them a dozen beer, the boys took the bribe,
Slipped them a dozen beer, the boys took the bribe!

Legs a flyin and the feet just a fryin', taps smoking over his shoulder.
Flatout
Percy usually won and he might've done okay,
Except when he started running he was going the wrong way,
When he started running he was going the wrong way!

Well Dewey tripped and Percy tripped, boots became undone and slipped!
Got a smack, had a crack, bloodied legs and puss-ee lips!
Up they git, down they goes, for at least another hour or so,
The women kicked their arses and they got on with the show
Flatout
The women kicked their arses and they got on with the show!

Legs a flyin and the feet just a fryin' Taps smoking over his shoulder! FLATOUT
Judges never stopped him, they were on his side,
He slipped them a dozen beer, the boys took the bribe,
Slipped them a dozen beer, the boys took the bribe!

Legs a flyin and the feet just a fryin' Taps smoking over his shoulder!
Flatout
Back down the beach they couldn't get around the cape
The tide came in and they cancelled the race
