My Country Girl - Long Tom & his dusty danglers

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Ok this one is a little more obtuse than my last post earlier today.

In Australia there is an alternative rock station called Triple J and on the evening show they used to play this song heaps that was a country music parody by, I assume an alternative rock band. It didn't actually swear anywhere in it, but it made you think it was going to. And part of the chorus goes "...she was a coun...try girl at heart..." - (the pregnant pause there in the middle of "country" is deliberate)

Any ideas? I can't think who the song is by but it's probably obscure. Although, if anyone would know, it is the forum dudes on Songfacts.

Thanx heaps again

Could it possibly be something by Shooter Jennings (Waylon's son)? He's kind of country-rock, and his new album is called "Put The O Back In Country".

So, if he's titling his album that I'm sure he's not afraid to use a similar theme in a song.

Is this it? It's "Skin Flicks" by Barclay James Harvest and apologies for every word being capitalized. I copied and pasted ;)

Unashamed, Body Bare

There's No Story

She's A Country Girl At Heart

There's No Glory

She's Just In It For The Art, Her Part

Sun Oiled Skin, Shapely Breast

Slim and Sleek, Without Dress

Page Two Girl, Page Two World

Glamour Girl, Look Your Best

There's No Story

She's A Country Girl At Heart

There's No Glory

She's Just In It For The Art, Her Part

Every Day I'm Waiting by The Telephone

Every Day You Keep Me Hanging On

But While You're Away, I Think Night and Day

About Where You're Gone and How For Long

Before Our Love Turns To Stone

See You In The Papers and The Magazines

But a Photograph's No Good To Me

But While You're Away, I Think Night and Day

About Where You're Gone and How For Long

Before Our Love Turns To Stone

Saw You For The First Time and My Shutter Froze

Cameras Clicked, We Kissed and You Were Gone

But While You're Away, I Think Night and Day

About Where You're Gone and How For Long

Before Our Love Turns To Stone

Beauty Contests Were Your Only Claim to Fame

Then Your Body Won Over Your Brain

You Stripped For the Lights

And Things Went Just Right

Now You're Suntanned Right Down To The Bone

And Our Love's Gone, Turned To Stone

Hi there again,

Thanx for the Barclay James suggestion, but that's not it.

The song wasn't that long, it would easily be less than 2.5 minutes and was filled with little sexual double entendres, in a way that lead you, the listener to anticipate the next word, thinking it would be a dirty one, only to find out they go in totally another direction.

The band, from what i remember had a strange and very long name, like something something and the something band. But I can't think of the bloody bands name either!

Thanx again.

Hi Jippers,

This is the song you heard:

It has been played on the Dr. Demento show. I don't know of it's availability but you may be able to find a recording of it if you search hard - enough. =:P

"My Country Girl"

By: Long Tom and His Dusty Danglers

(possibly could also be Long Tom and The Dusty Danglers) but I think it is "His"

I saw her snatch - her purse from the windowsill

And she blew me - a great big kiss

So I went down, all the way down

To liquor - store

But I knew that I would miss her whole - family

She grabbed my bag - of chips and ate them all

So I beat her - up and down the stairs

(Chorus)

Well she can't help it, no she can't help it

She's just a count - ry girl at heart

And she left me with a heart on - my sleeve

(Solo)

(Ahhh's....)

She Jerked me off - my horse to kiss me

And I felt it in the balls - of my feet

She said you are-so - lucky

You're addic - ted to love

But I couldn't get her to come - with me

(chorus)
