"Four Kicks" as written by and Caleb/followill Followill....
Huff men don't take no nonsense
He's here to rectify
He's got his black belt buckle
And the red mans fire in his eyes

You with your switchblade posse
I'll get my guns from the south
We'll take to the yard like a cock fight
For kicks, who's struttin' now?

This party's overrated
But there ain't shit else to do
She's a lovin' on the boy from the city
I'll be lovin' him under my shoe

You with your switchblade posse
I'll get my guns from the south
We'll take to the yard like a cock fight
For kicks, who's struttin' now?

You with your switchblade posse
I'll get my guns from the south
We'll take to the yard like a cock fight
For kicks, who's struttin' now?

    General CommentHuff man don't take no nonsense,
    He's here to rectify,
    He's got his black belt buckle,
    And the red man's fire in his eyes.

    You with your switchblade posse
    I'll get my guns from south
    We'll take to the yard like a cockfight
    Four kicks, who's struttin' now.

    This party's overrated
    But there ain't shit else to do
    She's a'lovin' on a boy from the city
    I'll be lovin' him under my shoe...

    At least, I think...
    It's more correct than that anyhoo...

    General Commentthe lyrics are wrong!
    actually they're:
    Huff man don't take no nonsense,
    He's here to rectify,
    He's got his black belt buckle,
    And the red man's fire in his eyes.

    You with your switchblade posse
    I'll get my guns from south
    We'll take to the yard like a cockfight
    Four kicks, who's struttin' now.

    This party's overrated
    But there ain't shit else to do
    She's a'lovin' on a boy from the city
    I'll be lovin' him under my shoe...

    cant be wrong,they're on their cd

    General CommentUmmmm i read in an interview, or maybe more than one interview, which i believe were from american magazines, that this song is taken from the band hearing stories about the fights their dad and his friends used to pick when they were younger. this was of course before his dad became a preacher or decided he wanted to become one.

    I believe that Caleb said that Huffman, who was one of his dad's friends, decided to pick a fight so that event is what the song is about. the four kicks refers to the pack of four friends that caleb's dad and huffman were included in. I think this all makes sense when you look at the lyrics, which, taken from the album jacket are:



    "Huffman don't take no nonsense
    he's here to rectify
    he's got his black belt buckle
    and the red mans fire in his eye

    You with your switchblade posse
    I'll get my guns from the SOUTH
    We'll take to the yard like a cockfight
    four kicks who's struttin now"....


    there's another verse but I don't feel like writing it.


    I highly doubt there is any political message in the song....i'm pretty sure it's just a song based on a story from the past. it has nothing to do with abbie hoffman or whatever.

    Lyric CorrectionI was watching a video on the OBTN trailer things and they where saying that the lyric is "Hoffman don't take no nonsense" which is after on of their friends that they are refering too in the song.

    General Commenthere is what i understood the words to be...what a great song...

    Hot men don't take no nonsense
    hes here to rectify
    hes got his black belt buckle
    and the red mans fire in his eyes

    You with your switchblade posse
    I'll get my guns from the south
    we'll take to the yard like a cock fight
    4 kicks, who's struttin now?

    this partys overrated
    but there ain't shit else to do
    she's a lovin on the boy from the city
    I'll be lovin him under my shoe..

    General Commentthe album sleeve gives legitimate lyrics, surprisingly.

    my guess is it's something else KOL experienced amidst their days of touring and writing between 'youth and young manhood' and 'aha shake heartbrake'. perhaps some kind of bitter resentment through rejection. there seems to be alot of hostility in this song. either that or it's not to be taken at face value.
