He aint good lookin' but he sure can play
and there's ZZTopp and you can't forget
that ole brother Willie's getting soaking wet
and all the good people down in Tennesee
are digging barefoot Jerry and the CDB
so gather round, gather round children get down
well just get down children, get loud, get loud
and be proud, be proud you're a rebel cause
the souths gonna do it again, and again.
South's Gonna Do it Again by The Charlie Daniels Band
Maybe it's because he's a good ol' country boy, but more likely it's just because "hay" rhymes with "play", so it works well in the song.
he ain't good looking but he sure can play
Charlie Daniels Band 70-80's Hits
mabe he's helpin Dicky Betts play that red guitar
he ain't good looking but he sure can play.
