"Dukes of Hazzrd Theme" as written by and Waylon Jennings....
Just the good ol' boys
Never meanin' no harm
Beats all you never saw
Been in trouble with the law
Since the day they was born

Staightenin' the curves
Flatenin' the hills
Someday the mountain might get 'em
But the law never will

Makin' their way
The only way they know how
That's just a little bit more
Than the law will allow

Makin' their way
The only way they know how yeah
That's just a little bit more
Than the law will allow

I'm a good ol' boy
You know my momma loves me
But she don't understand
They keep a showin' my hands
And not my face on TV

    General CommentYour lyrics are missing the whole first verse of the song!

    "Just two good ol' boys
    Never meanin' no harm
    Beat all you never saw, been in trouble with the law since the day they was born."

    Then the rest of it is OK, except for the last verse...

    "Just TWO good ol' boys..."

    And helluva show too, this TV series ranks up there as one of the best ever. YEEEEEEHAAAHHHH!!!

    General Commentits a shame not only is this not the proper title to the song, but also this is the only song under Waylon's name. He did alot for not only being Buddy Holly's bassist but also being a artist who changed the music industry completely in Nashville, starting the "Outlaw" movement which was fueled by a piss off attitude. sound fimilar to another musical movement?

    General CommentDear GOD this isn't even the entire song. You missed an entire verse:

    "I'm a good old boy
    I know my mama loves me
    But she don't understand
    They keep-a showin' my hands
    And not my face on TV."

    The last verse, for those who never watched the TV show, refers to how you always see the narrator (Waylon's) hands playing the guitar, but you never actually see who it is.

    Waylon, aka Waymore (as in "Waymore's Blues"), aka Watashe (his nickname given to him by Hank Williams, Jr.) deserves way better than this. He had about a thousand songs in his repetoire better than this one, yet this is the one that the moronic new generations will listen to over and over and feel is his only claim to fame?

    General CommentI have a version where the last verse goes like this:

    I'm a good ole boy
    You know my mama loves me
    But she don't understand
    They keep on showing my hands
    But not my face on TV.

    The above is not the TV show version.
