I saw a little bit of a show on the history of car racing the other day (SHUT UP, my daddy raised me right — girl likes her some car racing!) and ever since then I’ve had this song stuck in my head. The song wasn’t on the show, but it should have been.
“You know he say he learn how to race the stock car by runnin’ ‘shine outta Alabam” … “Oh Roy’s so cool, that racin’ fool, he don’t know what fear’s about; he do a hundred thirty mile an hour smilin’ at the camera wit’ a toothpick in his mouth“
