The Dang Yankee as Described in Song

Today’s WordPress Daily Prompt challenges bloggers to put together a mix tape that describes who they are. So, in case you’re wondering about the man behind The Dang Yankee, these songs will tell the story:

  1. Immigrant Song– Led Zeppelin. So my friends here in the South say.
  2. I Like Beer– Tom. T. Hall That tells you 90% of what you need to know.
  3. Ten Rounds With Jose Cuervo– Tracy Byrd And that’s the other 10%.
  4. Growing Older But Not Up- Jimmy Buffett I can control the latter but not the former.
  5. Old Folks Boogie– Little Feat It follows naturally from #4.
  6. They’re Coming To Take Me Away, Ha Haaa!– Napoleon XIV As a result of nos. 2 & 3.
  7. Still Crazy After All These Years– Paul Simon Which follows from 4,5, & 6
  8. Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow– Frank Zappa  Although I don’t have to worry about that one so much here in Louisiana
  9. As The Raven Flies- Dan Fogelberg Can you spell Super Bowl Repeat?
  10. Carry On Wayward Son– Kansas Encouraging words from my mother.

And one that no longer applies since I happen to be retired:

  • Drinks After Work- Toby Keith

  5. It was one of my favorites back in the day, Sammy. Led Zeppelin III was one of the first LP’s I owned, and I think I wore the grooves on that track completely through the record.
