He Could Eat Up His Weight In Groceries

There was a time, probably in the mid-70's, that Jerry Reed was a huge star, both on the radio, and in the movies. His biggest hits were "When Your Hot, Your Hot" and "Southbound and Down" which of course, was the theme to Smokey and The Bandit. But my favorite Jerry Reed song was this number because it was super funky, and he said "Cajun" and "Thibodeaux" in the lyrics. Made me feel like we were the center of the Universe. I found out later it was a Universe filled with cliche's and stereotypes...but the tune is still super funky.
