I don't really think he had a specific artist in mind. More just country music in general.

(That said I can totally hear Johnny Cash singing it)

I think this is Al's greatest original...behind "I Was Only Kidding" of course. :P

Having watched "Walk The Line" multiple times recently and being subjected to a ton of his work throughout my life, I can safely agree with this statement.

Then again, I'm visualizing Elvis Presley doing it right now too...

But yes, I thoroughly enjoy hearing this song. He could do this one live and I'd love it... but I don't think Al is going to do a different Polka Party! original any time soon in the set list.

"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

Thanks for posting that, Helen. They actually did a pretty good job with it.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

I agree that this song is very underrated. I discovered this song late because I only had Permanent Record for many years. Only last year did I get the rest of Al's songs that weren't on PR. I was pleasantly surprised when I first heard this song. Al should do a little more country. If you want to hear another great country-sounding song that's making fun of country music, check out Gin Blossom's "Cheatin'" from their album "New Miserable Experience".
I still agree with my review from 8 years ago. Great song. 4 out of 5 stars.
