Way down in West Virginia,
There are some people who are one of a kind.
They don't need nothin' from nobody,
'Cause they're already doin' fine.
You got Hasil Adkins punchin',
An' Mamie's raisin' hell.
The legend of D Ray White,
Will never die like a rebel yell.
An' ol' Jesco's dancin' in his Daddy's shoes.
Yeah, ol' Hasil's still punchin' out them Boone County blues.
(Boone County blues.)
An' ol' Mamie, you know she's done some time in jail.
The legend of D Ray White will never die like a rebel yell.
-Instrumental break-
Birty Mae White, she's the strongest woman,
That I've ever met in my life.
She raised over twenty-four of her own,
An' had to watch her husband die.
She's always fightin' hard,
An' livin' off the land.
When she's done livin' in this world,
You know, the Lord's gonna take her by her hand.
An' ol' Jesco's dancin' in his Daddy's shoes.
Yeah, ol' Hasil's still punchin' out them Boone County blues.
(Boone County blues.)
An' Mamie, you know she's still raisin' hell.
The legend of D Ray White will never die like a rebel yell.
Yeah, the legend of D Ray White will never die like a rebel yell.
