    LEROY, THE REDNECK REINDEER    Joe Diffie

E                        A               E
You've all heard about Rudolph and his nose
E                                        B7
But I'll tell you a Christmas tale that never has been told
          E                                     A7          E
Well, you may think you've heard it all but you ain't heard yet
A                                    B7                 E
About that crazy Christmas that the North pole can't forget
E                             A                  E
Rudolph was under the weather he had to call in sick
E                                              B7
So he got on the horn to his cousin Leroy who lived out in the sticks
          E                                   A               E
He said Santa's really counting on me and I hate to pass the buck
A               E                     B7                    E
Leroy said Hey I'm on my way and he jumped in his pick-up truck
E                                            A                     E
When Leroy got to the North Pole all the reindeer snickered and laughed
E                                         B7
They never seen a deer in overalls and a John Deere Tractor hat
E
But Santa stepped in and said
                 A                        E
Just calm down cause you all got a job to do
A                 E                         B7              E
Like it or not, Leroy's in charge and he's gonna be leading you

CHORUS:
             E
And it was Leroy, the red neck reindeer
A                            E
Hooked to the front of the sleigh
E                                             B7
Delivering toys to all the good ole boys and girls along the way
E                                    A                       E
He's just a down home party animal, two stepping across the sky
A                                   E        B7                E
He mixed jingle bells with a rebel yell and made histroy that night

E                           A                       E
Before that night was over Leroy had changed their tune
E
He had them scootin' a hoof on every single roof
        B7
By the light of a neon moon
         E
Santa wrapped his bag with a Dixie flag
        A                      E
He was having the time of his life
E
You can hear his call Merry Christmas y'all
     B7                  E
And y'all, y'all a good night.
