I have gotten to spend more time lately with my grandson. We have a great time together, and for the second time lately, he has brought a tear to his Papa's eye. The first time that he brought a tear to my eye recently, was when he hauled off and hit me square in the sack with a fairly strong right hook. The second time was when he told me that he was going outside to work on his tractor. I followed him out a few minutes later, and there he was, right in front of me, and he was working on his tractor. Now, this may seem very uneventful to the untrained Yankee eye, but to a Pure-Bred Papa from the Great State of Tennessee, seeing that little tractor up on a set of little brick blocks in the front yard, well, it just caused a tear to come to my eye!

A truer redneck if I ever saw one. My wife can relate as she's from Kentucky.

Chopstick,

And the tractor is the right color....You have to be a redneck to notice that. In Tennesse and Arkansas if we saw somwone having trouble with a tractor we just said, "Paint it green." A nod to the John Deere lover in all southern boys...

They were farm kids way down in Dixie
Met in high school in the sixties
Everyone knew it was love from the start
One July in the midnight hour
He climbed upon the water tower
Stood on the rail and painted a 10 foot heart
In John Deere Green

On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3 feet high
And the whole town said that he should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green

They settled down on eighty acres
Raising sweet corn, kids, and tomatos
They went together like a hand and a glove
On a clear day from their front yard
If you look and know what to look for
Off to the east you can still read his words of love
In John Deere Green

On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3 fet high
And the whole town said the boy should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green

Now more than once
The town has discovered
Painting over it ain't no use
There ain't no paint in the world
That'll cover it, the heart keeps showing through
In John Deere Green

On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3 feet high
And the whole town said the fool should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green

Ahh paint it green boy
In John Deere Green

On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3 feet high
And the whole town said the boy should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green

I'm a born Vermonter now living in Florida but this really strikes home. Classic.
