What this world needs is a few more rednecks
Some people with the nerve to take the stand
What this world needs is a little more respect
For the Lord and the law and the workin man

We could use a little peace and satisfaction
Some good people up front to take the lead
A little less talk and a little more action
And a few more rednecks is what we need

I was raised on beans and cornbread
And I like my chicken fried
Yes, I drive a pick-up truck
And Im full of American pride

I keep a Bible on my table
I got a flag out on my lawn
And I dont believe in mindin
No ones business but my own

And I love them Rambo movies
I think they make a lot of sense
And its a shame ole John Wayne
Didnt live to run for president

And I dont care what nobody says
I dont trust ole Gorbachev
And I dont know who turned him on
But its time to turn him off

What this world needs is a few more rednecks
Some people with the nerve to take a stand
What this world needs is a little more respect
For the Lord and the law and the workin man

We could use a little peace and satisfaction
Some good people up front to take the lead
A little less talk and a little more action
And a few more rednecks is what we need

Now theyre tryin to take my guns away
And that would be just fine
If you take em away from the criminals first
Ill gladly give ya mine

And I dont mind payin taxes
But it makes my temper itch
When my hard earned money goes
To make some politician rich

What most people call a redneck
Aint nothin but a workin man
And he makes his livin by the sweat of his brow
And the calluses on his hands

Now you intellectuals may not like it
But there aint nothin that you can do
'Cause theres a whole lot more of us common folks
Then there ever will be of you

What this world needs is a few more rednecks
Some people with the nerve take a stand
What this world needs is a little more respect
For the Lord and the law and the workin man

We could use a little peace and satisfaction
Some good people up front to take the lead
Need a little less talk and a little more action
And a few more rednecks is what we need

Thats what we need
And a few more rednecks is what we need
