The Top 10 County Songs About Food

The Boot is out with its rankings of the 10 country songs about food. Here they are, along with each song’s most mouthwatering lyric:

  1. “Jambalaya (on the Bayou),” Hank Williams: “Settle down far from town, get me a pirogue / And I’ll catch all the fish in the bayou / Jambalaya and a crawfish pie.”
  2. “Chicken Fried,” Zac Brown Band: Well, I was raised beneath the shade of a Georgia pine / And that’s home, you know / Sweet tea, pecan pie, and homemade wine / Where the peaches grow.”
  3. “Meat and Potatoes Man,” Alan Jackson: “I like my Wrangler jeans, cowboy boots / Cornbread and beans and country roots.”
  4. “Dry Land Fish,” the Kentucky Headhunters: “Dry land fish, so good for the soul / You just reach out and grab ’em and put ’em in a poke / And if a genie gave me a bottle, there’d be three things I’d wish / Corn, greens and taters and dry land fish.”
  5. “Please Pass the Biscuits,” Jimmy Dean: “I got a plate of chicken and taters and a lot of stuff like that / All, all I need is a biscuit, but I wish you’d look where they’re at / I guess I could reach across the table / But that’s ill-mannered, Mom always said / I wish I had a biscuit, I just can’t eat without bread.”
  6. “Christmas Cookies,” George Strait: “Now, Christmas cookies are a special treat / The more she bakes, the more I eat / And sometimes, I can’t get myself to stop / Sometimes she’ll wait ’til I’m asleep / She’ll take the ones I didn’t eat / And put those little sprinkly things on top.”
  7. “Burgers and Fries,” Charley Pride: “Burgers and fries and cherry pies / It was simple and good back then.”
  8. “Watermelon Crawl,” Tracy Byrd: “He said, ‘We got a hundred gallons of sweet red wine / Made from the biggest watermelons on the vine.'”
  9. “Do You Want Fries With That?” Tim McGraw: “You’re out here buying Happy Meals / And I’m eating rice and pintos / You so much as crack a smile at me, man / I’ll come through this here window.”
  10. “Biscuits,” Kacey Musgraves: “Mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy.”
