Gretchen Wilson, la “cattivista” del country USA

Gretchen Wilson, nata nel 1973 a Pocahontas nell’ Illinois, invade la scena musicale country americana nel 2004 con Redneck Girl, un brano che sale subito in testa alle classifiche e che vince uno dei Grammy Award, massimo riconoscimento musicale negli Stati Uniti. Se il motivo si inserisce nel più classico schema del country, il testo della canzone costituisce invece un vero e proprio manifesto del comportamento anticonvenzionale, “cattivista” proposto alle donne americane.

Ecco il testo:
Well I ain’t never
Been the barbie doll type
No I can’t swig that sweet champagne
I’d rather drink beer all night
In a tavern or in a honky tonk
I want a four wheel drive tailgate
I’ve got posters on my wall of Skynrd, Kid and Straight
Some people look down on me
But I don’t give a rip
I stand barefooted in my own front yard with a baby on my hip
‘Cause I’m redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my rasin’
And I say “hey y’all” and “Yee Haw”
And I keep my Christmas lights on my front porch all year long
And I know all the words to every Charlie Daniels song
So here’s to all my sisters out there keeping it country
Let me give a big “Hell Yea” from the redneck girls like me
Hell yeah
Hell yeah
Victoria’s Secret
Well their stuff’s real nice
Oh but I can buy the same damn thing on a WalMart shelf half price
And still look sexy
Just as sexy
As those models on TV
No I don’t need no designer tag to make my man want me
You might think I’m trashy
A little too hard core
But get in my neck of the woods
I’m just the girl next door
Hey I’m redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my rasin’
And I say “hey y’all” and “Yee Haw”
And I keep my Christmas lights on my front porch all year long
And I know all the words to every Tanya Tucker song
So here’s to all my sisters out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “Hell Yeah” from the redneck girls like me
Hell yeah
Hell yeah
I’m redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my rasin’
And I say “hey y’all” and “Yee Haw”
And I keep my Christmas lights on my front porch all year long
And I know all the words to every Ol’ Bo Seafus song
So here’s to all my sisters out there keeping it country
Let me give a big “Hell Yeah” from the redneck girls like me
Hell yeah
Hell yeah
Hell yeah
Hell yeah
Hell yeah
Hell yeah
I said hell yeah
