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.”
