South bound out of Shreveport heading hell bent for his grave
He reads a sign on the barn door that says the good lord Jesus saves
But I don't think Jesus knows him 'cause he ain't the Jesus kind
He's a laid back country picker with a laid back country mind

He gave the folks a good show at the Shreveport Coliseum
They all heard he's dying, so they all come out to see
Friends and neighbors make him happy
Lord them snuff queens treat him kind
He's a laid back country picker with a laid back country mind

Uppers, downers, turn arounders picked him up and laid him down
His old troubles keep on swimming 'cause their to damn mean to drown
He keeps looking for an answer I know he's never gonna find
He's a laid back country picker with a laid back country mind

Big Bertha, back in Beaumont says he really turns her on
She hits the floor a dancing, when the DJ plays his song
You can see somebody loves him, or at least they did one time
He's a laid back country picker with a laid back country mind

Uppers, downers, turn arounders picked him up and laid him down
His old troubles keep on swimming 'cause their to damn mean to drown
He keeps looking for an answer I know he's never gonna find
He's a laid back country picker with a laid back country mind
