This week we are featuring ‘Russell and Ronnie’ a tale that belays it’s peppy demeanor — sometimes the plain facts of a matter are so bad all you can do is play Zydeco. Definitely a very fun song to dance too!
Way out back round the well
Ronnie’s stumbling towards the farmhouse
drunk as hell.
He gets loose and sings off key
tries to get your little lady on his knee.
So slip your gal through the side door
don’t let that ol’ drunk Ronnie
round here no more.
He’s all hopped up on pills and wine
crazy for his brother’s brand new wife
he’s so damned bleary-eyed
he mistook her for his own.
Now he’s had a taste of her’s
and his own wife’s love’s gone cold.
…and then this song goes into some really strange places… ending with (as seen at Bridger Bowl):
Heed my words, all you folks,
taking each other’s wives ain’t no joke.
But, if you do, and break the news
you’d better hope he’s drunk his weight in booze.
