​You Can't Hide A Redneck (Under That Hippy Hair)

This song is by Doug Sahm and appears on the album Texas Rock For Country Rollers (1977).

White is white
And black is black
Rich folks rotten in a big cadillac
You can't have one without the other
And he's one thing
That you might as well get used to
Cause you can't hide a redneck
Underneath that hippy hair
Don't care how many joints you roll
Oh man, you got a white man's soul

I been to Paris
I been to Spain
I been to Vienna
I played the white man's game
I been burned down in deals
Been tripped, tried and busted
I'm gonna tell you one thing
And you might as well trust it
Cause you can't hide a redneck, no
Underneath that hippy hair
I don't care how many joints you roll
Oh man, you got a white man's soul

Blow your horn Harry
(Guitars)

Well everybody you better beware
Bad things are coming if you ain't aware
You better grab your friend
And look him in the eye
'Cause if you ain't careful
He might be wearing a disguise
Cause you can't hide a redneck
Underneath that hippy hair
Don't care how many joints you roll
Watch it
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You got a white man's soul, soul, soul
