funny classic country songs

Below, we’ve compiled some of the best funny country songs you’ll ever hear. Get ready to have your sides in stitches because some these songs really tell it as it is!

1. Freddy B – She Only Bitches when She Breathes

It’s a story all too many married folk know so well. Everything was fine and dandy before you got married and then BAM! She completely changes once you tie the knot. In this 2011 hit, Freddie B hates how all his now-wife’s pre-wedding promises have remained unfulfilled. She’s now the complete opposite of who he wants in a wife, so much so that all he can do is reminisce about their past romantic days.

Funny country lines: She only bitches when she breathes

Rollin in the hay upsets her allergies

Wont wear no sexy lengerie

Since she ate that wedding cake

Only thing she blows is my money and dreams


2. Confederate Railroad – Trashy Women

We’ve all heard the songs about guys and the gals of their dreams. They want the sweet Southern Belle, the debutant, the proper lady. But the guys over at Confederate Railroad are just simple, honest folk who like their beer cold and their women trashy!

Funny country lines: Yeah, and I like my women just a little on the trashy side

When they wear their clothes too tight and their hair is dyed

Too much lipstick and, ah, too much rouge

Gets me excited, leaves me feeling confused

And I like my women just a little on the trashy side

3. Paul Overstreet – I Think She Only Loves Me for My Willie

With a title like that, you can’t expect this to be a serious song, can you? This pun-tastic song isn’t about what you think, though. Instead, it’s referring to a guy who thinks his girl only likes him for how well he can sing Willie Nelson’ Whiskey River.

Funny country lines: But I think she only loves me for my Willie

Something about my Willie turns her on

It’s not all that extraordinary really

But it’s better than my Haggard and my Jones


4. Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty – You’re the Reason Our Kids are Ugly

If you want to laugh until your sides hurt, this is the song you should be listening to. This 1978 song is all about a couple who have come to terms with being stuck together forever. They throw some major shade at each other for all the bad things that have been happening, the most telling of which is having ugly kids. But then again, they’re okay with it all because despite all the miseries they’ve been through, the love is still there.

Funny country lines: And you’re the reason our kids are ugly, little darlin’

Ah, but looks ain’t everythin’ and money ain’t everythin’

But I love you just the same


5. Laura Bell Bundy – You Can’t Pray the Gay Away

Back in the day, praying for a loved one to stop being gay would have been a common practice. But in this modern age, we all know that you can’t pray away what someone really is! So quit it with trying to change who you or anyone else is and just accept them!

Funny country lines: You can’t pray the gay away

No matter what your preachers say

There’s no fighting DNA

You can’t pray the gay away

6. Rodney Carrington – Dancing with a Man

Speaking of genders, while you may be accepting of people being attracted to the same sex, you may not be the one to indulge in the same practices. In this song by Rodney Carrington, two Texas cowboys find themselves getting drunk and dancing with a very suspicious looking lady.

Funny country lines: I think I’m dancing with a man

She’s got callouses on her hands

She’s got a voice deeper than mine

She gets a stiffy when we grind

I think I’m dancing with a man


7. Buck Owens – Who’s Gonna Mow Your Grass

While you have songs in other genres with guys crooning about their ladies missing their sweet kisses and thoughtful words, Buck Owens lays it down like it is. In this song, a husband asks his wife a bunch of practical questions to keep her from breaking up with him, and one of those questions is who would mow the grass when he’s gone.

Funny country lines: Who’s gonna bring you your breakfast in bed who’s gonna whisper goodnight

Who’s gonna keep you warm as toast on those cold winter nights

And who’s gonna be your puppy dog when I’m a thing of the past

Hey who’s gonna mow your grass


8. Jaron and The Long Road to Love – I Pray for You

How sweet that he’s praying for the woman who left him, right? Well not really. Especially when you realize what he’s actually praying for!

Funny country lines: I pray your brakes go out runnin’ down a hill

I pray and flower pot falls from a window sill

And knocks you in the head like I’d like to

I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls

I pray you’re flyin’ high when your engine stalls

I pray all your dreams never come true

Just know wherever you are honey, I pray for you

9. Dan Hicks – How Can I Miss You if You Won’t Go Away

How do you deal with unwanted attention? Dan Hicks has done almost everything he can to make his admirer just bugger off. But she just won’t leave him alone. And so he asks her, how can I miss you if you won’t go away?!

Funny country lines: I’ve talked to your mother and I’ve talked to your dad

They say they’ve tried but it’s all in vain

I’ve begged and I’ve pleaded, I even got mad

Now we must face it, you give me a pain

How can I miss you when you won’t go away?

Keep telling you day after day

But you won’t listen, you always stay and stay

How can I miss you when you won’t go away?


10. Patsy Cline – I Love You, Honey

How sweet! Why is this song on the list at all? Well, Patsy shows us that you can love someone for who they are. But you can also love them for what they own what they can give you.

Funny country lines: I love you honey, I love your money

I love your automobile

I love you baby, I don’t mean maybe

You’re the sweetest thing on wheels

I love your kisses, I wouldn’t miss it

No matter how I feel

I love you honey, I love your money

Most of all I love your automobile


11. Brad Paisley – I’m Gonna Miss Her

Here’s another misleading title. It’s sweet when a guy misses their lady, but that kind of depends on the circumstances. In this song, Brad was made to choose between fishing and his lady, and his response is that he’ll miss her when she goes away.

Funny country lines: Well I’m gonna miss her

When I get home

But right now I’m on this lake shore

And I’m sittin’ in the sun

I’m sure it’ll hit me

When I walk through that door tonight

That I’m gonna miss her

Oh, lookie there, I’ve got a bite

12. Billy Currington – Like My Dog

You know it’s not a healthy relationship when you wish your lady was more like your dog who unconditionally loves you. In this song, Billy Currington tells his wife about how much his dog loves him and how he wishes his wife could be just like his furry companion.

Funny country lines: He never tells me that he’s sick of this house

He never says why don’t you get off that couch?

He don’t cost me nothin’ when he wants to go out

I want you to love me like my dog


13. Neal Mc Coy – Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On

In this song, Neal sings about his pal Billy, who has just been dumped by his girlfriend. And so they go to the local bar to get smashed. And while Billy has his beer goggles on, he ends up dancing with a suspicious looking lady. No, she’s not a man as in the case of Rodney Carrington. Instead, he’s dancing with someone you’ll only dance with if you’re black-out drunk!

Funny country lines: He’s on the dance floor yelling “Freebird”

Singing off pitch but he knows every word

Grabs him a girl and he holds on tight

He’s chasing everything in sight

He’ll fall apart when he gets home

But right now his worries are gone

Life looks good, good, good

Billy’s got his beer goggles on


14. David Frizzel – I’m Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home

If you live with a constant drunk, might as well hire someone who can decorate the home according to his tastes, right? In this song, a wife laments how his husband is always drunk, and so she wants to hire a fellow wino to decorate their home to make it look like the bar since that’s what her husband wants anyway.

Funny country lines: She said: “I’m gonna’ hire a wino to decorate our home,

“So you’ll feel more at ease here, and you won’t have to roam.

“We’ll take out the dining room table, and put a bar along that wall.

“And a neon sign, to point the way, to our bathroom down the hall.”


15. Johnny Cash – A Boy Named Sue

Last but not the least is probably the most popular comedic country song that even people who don’t listen to country music would know about. The beauty of this song is a combination of its tune, its lyrics, and the masterful way Johnny Cash performs it. In this song, Johnny Sings as a boy named Sue who hates his father for giving his such an awful name. He goes through life being a tough guy to compensate for his feminine name until one day, he comes face to face with the man who’s responsible for giving him this godawful name.

Funny country lines: I got all choked up and I threw down my gun

Called him my Pa, and he called me his son

And I come away with a different point of view

And I think about him, now and then

Every time I try and every time I win

And if I ever have a son, I think I’m gonna name him…

Bill or George! Anything but Sue! I still hate that name!
