More Deep Thoughts from Charlie Daniels

    Today Charlie speaks about our lord and savior Jesus Christ and also takes on non believers. It seems like he is also taking a shot at Mitt:


    There is much evil afoot in the world, many organized religions
    which claim to be Christians, denominations who take the parts of the Holy Bible that suits their purposes and ignore the rest, they deny the virgin birth and the resurrection of Jesus.

    Some claim Jesus was a great prophet and he was that, the greatest prophet to ever walk on the earth, but He was also the only begotten Son of God and if you believe anything less than that, and I mean the whole thing, the virgin birth, the death and resurrection and the blood bought atonement for sin, you are not a Christian, because that's what being a Christian is.

    That's pretty much standard Christian thinking there, Boomer.

    Ace I think its more narrow minded or simpleton christian thinking.

    I wonder how many people remember Charlie's first hit, "Uneasy Rider," about a hippie talking his way out of trouble in a "square" small town?
    That was many years and quite a few pork rinds ago, from the looks of Charlie.
    Lyrics were as follows:

    I was takin a trip out to L.A.
    Toolin along in my cheverolet
    Tokin on a number and diggin on the radio

    Just as I crossed the Mississippi line
    I heard that highway start to whine
    And I knew that left rear tire was about to blow

    Well the spare was flat and I got uptight
    Cause there wasn't a filling station in sight
    So I just limped on down the shoulder on the rim

    I went as far as I could and when I stopped the car
    It was right in front of this little bar
    Kind of a red-neck lookin joint called the Dew Drop Inn

    I stuffed my hair up under my hat
    And told the bartender that I had a flat
    And ywould he be kind enough to give me change for a one

    There was one thing I was sure proud to see
    There wasn't a soul in the place except for him and me
    He just looked disgusted and pointed toward the telephone

    I called up the station down the road a ways
    He said he wasn't very busy today
    And he could have somone out there in just about 10 minutes or so

    He said," Now, you just stay right where yer at!"
    And I didn't bother to tell the darn fool
    That I sure as hell didn't have anyplace else to go

    So I ordered up a beer and sat down at the bar
    When some guy walked in and said, "Who owns this car
    With the peace sign, the mag wheels and the four on the floor?"

    He looked at me and I damn near died
    And I decided that I'd just wait outside
    So I laid a dollar on the bar and headed for the door

    Just when I wthought I'd get outta there with my skin
    These 3 big dudes come strollin in
    With one old drunk chick and some fella with green teeth

    Now the last thing I wanted was to get into a fight
    In Jackson Mississippi on a Saturday night
    Especially when there was three of them and only one of me

    I was almost to the door when the biggest one
    Said, "You tip your hat to this lady, son!"
    And when I did, all that hair fell out from underneath

    They all started laughin and I felt kinda sick
    And I knew I better think of something pretty quick
    So I just reached out and kicked old green teeth right in the knee

    Now he let out a yell that'd curl yer hair
    But before he could move I grabbed me a chair
    And said "Now watch him Folks cause he's a fairly dangerous man!"

    "You may not know it but this man is a spy.
    He's a undercover agent for the FBI
    And he's been sent down here to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan!"

    He was still bent over holdin on to his knee
    But everybody else was looking and listening to me
    And I laid it on thicker and heavier as I went

    "He's a friend of them long haired, hippy-type, pinko fags!
    I betchya he's even got a commie flag
    tacked up on the wall inside of his garage."

    "He's a snake in the grass, I tell ya guys.
    He may look dumb but that's just a disguise,
    He's a mastermind in the ways of espionage"

    "Would you believe this man has gone as far
    As tearing Wallace stickers off the bumpers of cars.
    And he voted for George McGovern for President."

    They started lookin real suspicious at him
    He jumped up and said "Now just wait a minute Jim!
    You know he's lying I been living here all of my life!"

    "I'm a faithful follower of Brother John Birch
    And I belong to the Antioch Baptist Church.
    And I aint even got a garage, you can call home and ask my wife!"

    Then he started saying somethin bout the way I was dressed
    But I didn't wait around to hear the rest
    I was too busy moving and hoping I didn't run outta luck

    When I hit the door I was making tracks
    And they were just taking my car down off the jack
    So I threw the man a twenty and jumped in and fired that mother up

    Mario Andretti wouldda sure been proud
    Of the way I was movin when I passed that crowd
    Coming out the door and headed toward me at a trott

    Now I guess I should of gone ahead and run
    But somehow I just couldn't resist the fun
    Of chasing them all just once around the parking lot

    I had them all out there steppin and fetchin
    Like their heads was on fire and their asses was catchin
    then I figgered I had better go ahead and split before the cops got there

    When I hit the road I was really wheelin
    Had gravel flyin and rubber squeelin
    And I didn't slow down till I was almost to Arkansas

    I think I'm gonna reroute my trip
    I wonder if anybody'd think I'd flipped
    If I went to L.A., via Omaha

    And let's not forget that the subject of Kenny Rogers's first hit record was sniffing glue ...

    Charlie did play a pretty mean fiddle on Marshall Tucker Band's live album, "Where We All Belong."

    Hondo has no idea why he just started playing a fiddle.

    And 15 years later he wrote a followup, having by then either become the kind of bigoted, redneck slob he had mocked or having decided it was more profitable to pretend he was:


    I bought one or two of his albums in the 1970s when the whole Southern rock thing was at its peak, but he was waaay down the list after bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker, Outlaws, Blackfoot, etc. No great loss that he's apparently gone insane.

    Charlie has gone Col Kurtz on us.
