Song of the Day #4,622: ‘Too Country’ – Brad Paisley

In one of those weird Random Weekend coincidences, the Random iTunes Fairy has served up a song from Brad Paisley’s sophomore album the day after landing on one from his debut. The odds of a song from 2001’s Part II following yesterday’s selection were 1 in 1,010.

The mischievous Fairy chose to land on the corniest song on that album, and perhaps the corniest song in Paisley’s whole catalog.

‘Too Country’ was written by Bill Anderson and Chuck Cannon, and features vocals by Paisley, Anderson, Buck Owens and George Jones. That’s a whole lot of white guys.

I can’t wait to read frequent commenter Dana’s reaction to this slice of cheese.

[Verse 1]
Too country what’s that
Is it like too Republican or too Democrat
Is it too far to the left
Too far to the right
Too straight down the middle
Is it too black or too white

[Verse 2]
Are the biscuits too fluffy is the chicken too fried
Is the gravy too thick are the peas too black-eyed
Is the iced tea too sweet does it have too much tang
Are there too many lemons in mama’s lemon meringue

[Verse 3]
Too country what’s that
It is too many pearls of wisdom under grandpa’s old hat
Is it just too old fashioned is it just too antique
Is the question too strong or the answer too weak

[Verse 4]
Are the roses too red is the sunshine too bright
Are there too many stars in the heavens at night
Are there too many fish that still jump in the stream
Is the blue sky too blue is the clean air too clean

[Verse 5]
Is the grace too amazing is the steeple too tall
Are there too many “yes sir’s”, “yes ma’am’s”
And “how’re y’all’s”
Is the message too really too close to the bone
Do the fiddle and steel remind you too much of home
Is honest and true just not in demand
Too country
Too country
Too country
I don’t understand

    Well, all I can say is that this song gives “Accidental Racist” a run for its money! Maybe the two songs can be part of a mashup called “Too Racist.” (“Too racist? Too racist. I don’t understand”)
