O xerife Kenny Price da country music em Boone County

BOTANDO ORDEM NA ZONA

Do blog HotGaragem

Quem gosta de música country norte-americana vai se divertir com este clássico do gênero, no vozeirão do monstro-sagrado Kenny Price, intepretando um típico e machão Sheriff of Boone County.

Nesta canção, gravada há 40 anos, Price (1931-1987) ameaça com dois canhões na cintura os foras-da-lei e playboys que se atrevem a cruzar o seu condado, entre Nashville e Cincinnati. É genial!

E mais trepidante que uma dupla marrenta brasileira — onde um grita e o outro finge que canta — que quase é levada em cana por um guarda após dormir no banco da praça… pensando nela.

THE SHERIFF OF BOONE COUNTY

Kenny Price

Yeah I don’t take no lip with this cannon on my hip
Let me tell you boy it ain’t no toy
I wear a hat just like a mounty I’m the sheriff of Boone County
Be careful boy cause you’re in a heap of a trouble boy

If you’re tryin’ to push your Caddy from Nashville to Cincinnati
You have to come across Boone County line
As you’re drivin’ through you better mind your P’s and Q’s
Cause this here stretch if interstate boy is mine

Now you might outrun my old Chevrolet but you can’t outrun my own two way
Lion’s awaitin’ at the station to hear from me
Now you’re gonna be a wishin’ I believed in extradition
Cause I’ll chase you all the way back to Tennesee

Yeah I don’t take no lip with this cannon on my hip
Let me tell you boy it ain’t no toy
I wear a hat just like a mounty I’m the sheriff of Boone County
Be careful boy cause you’re in a heap of a trouble boy

[ steel ]

So far I guess you been lucky but now you’re in Boone County Kentucky
And I don’t know how things are in Tennessee
I’m the roughest you ever saw around here I’m the law
And it’s been that way since back in ’43

Yeah I don’t take no lip with this cannon on my hip
Let me tell you boy it ain’t no toy
I wear a hat just like a mounty I’m the sheriff of Boone County
Be careful boy cause you’re in a heap of a trouble boy

(I run the grocery store down there and I pump the gas and I’m the dogcatcher too yeah
The judge that’s me put up your bond for you if you like
And if you happen to wreck your car on the way to the courthouse…)
