SongoftheDay: KING OF THE MOUNTAIN by SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS

The look, the swagger, the sound.  These three things have everything to do with why we here at rockandrolljunkie.com friggin’ love Southern Culture on the Skids.  What takes this band over the top is the lyrics.  Jesus fuck that shit is awesome!  Every single song is a right gem, but I’ve always loved their take on the greasy moonshine and porn producer in King of the Mountain.  Be sure to read these lyrics as you check out this great performance from Conan way back when.  Please.  I beg you.  Check out this band if they come anywhere near you.  – FATS

SongoftheDay: KING OF THE MOUNTAIN by SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS

Got himself a peach colored leisure suit
Hundred dollar bills stuffed in Florsheim boots
Smelling like a mentholated soda pop
Sho’ smellin’ sweet when the weather gets hot

You got a dime
He’s got a dollar
He’s the king of corn and porn
From from way back in the holler

They call him the King of the Mountain
A Blue Ridge business man
He’s an independant contractor
A doin’ the best that he can

Bought himself a camera down in Gunthersville
Bought it with the money from a moonshine still
Makin’ hillbilly blue way on back on ridge
Always gotta cold Diet Pepsi in his fridge

You got a dime
He’s got a dollar
He’s the king of corn and porn
From from way back in the holler

They call him the King of the Mountain
A Blue Ridge business man
He’s an independant contractor
Doin’ the best that he can

You drink it by the glass, you can buy it by the jar
He told my sister that he’d make her a star
His cash flow’s about a hundred proof
Just opened up a line of tanning booths

You got a dime
He’s got a dollar
He’s the king of corn and porn
From from way back in the holler

They call him the King of the Mountain
A Blue Ridge business man
He’s an independant contractor
Doin’ the best that he can

And if ya cousin comes around be sho’ to give a holler

They call him the King of the Mountain
A blue rich business man
He’s an independant contractor
Doin’ the best that he can
