"Queen Of The Rodeo" as written by and Jett Silver Jerry Cantrell....
My daddy was a trucker
Left home when I was three
He fell for some dude in Austin
Then it was mom and me
She always wanted a daughter
Well look at what she got
A'hit me, beat me, a faggot I ain't
But a real man they say I'm not
I'm the queen, queen of the rodeo
Queen, queen of the rodeo
So cowboy, if you're lookin for lovin'
I ain't no queer, go fuck a steer
"I think there's one over there"
I drink too much, I smoke too much
I'm a human waste
I buy a lot of cheap alcohol
But I'll tell ya honey, I really hate the taste
I dressed in drag, they call me a fag
But boy, I really don't care
Cause last night I met your girlfriend, sucker
And I hope ya like to share, cause she did
I'm the queen, queen of the rodeo
Queen, queen of the rodeo
So cowboy, if you're lookin to fight
I ain't no wimp, I scratch and bite
"And I'm gonna kick your ass too"
Queen, queen of the rodeo
Fuck You!
Queen, queen of the rodeo
Queen, queen of the rodeo

    General CommentI thought there was only a live version of this...at least the version I have. You know, in the beginning of the live one, Staley says "Seeing how we're in Dallas, thought we'd sing a little country song". So I think he is kind of mocking homophobes or the stereotype of all country music being homophobic and/or racist, sexist, ect.

    General CommentThe live version is way better than the studio version. It just sounds like Layne and the boys were dickin around when they recorded it (and there's nothing wrong with havin a little fun at work) I love playin the live version at night drivin around with my buddies. FUCK YOU! I dedicate this to the god damn cops in Erie. fuckin pigs

    I love the humor packed in these two lines. Considering how dark most of AIC's material is, this is refreshing. Not that I hate the dark numbers.

    General Commentthis song was about the actual writers (David Dunihoo) adoulecent. his step dad was a total douche, people were always judging him, and he is still to this day a heavy smoker. Alice in Chains stole it from him.
