    My time is very limited right now, but the 70's is my favorite decade, and Keith loves "honest" one takers, so killed two birds with one stone on this David Allan Coe song from 1979.

    Here's a Hank Williams Jr. song from 1987 I found, and it must be somewhat obscure. No lyrics online, was never on an album, just the B side of a 45. It's pretty funny though, so I tried it out.
