Who you gonna call? A traditional taxi or a car-ride provider like Uber?
When Uber came under scrutiny this week for allegedly using a feature called “God’s View” to allow employees to track customers’ movements via a smartphone app, our thoughts turned to five country singers whose song lyrics indicate they may need a ride now and then.
Jason Aldean, “Dirt Road Anthem”
“I’m chilling on a dirt road/Laid back, swerving like I’m George Jones/Smoke rolling out the window/Ice cold beer sitting in the console”
“I got that real good feel-good stuff . Up under the seat of my big black jacked-up truck … Scoot your little hot self over here/Girl, hand me another beer, yeah!”
“I drive an old Ford pickup truck/I do my drinkin’ from a Dixie cup”
Gene Watson, “Drinkin’ My Way Back Home”
“I sobered up in Houston in the bed of my pickup truck/My head was hangin’ so heavy, I could hardly hold it up/I got to thinkin’ ‘bout sweet little woman I left all alone/And that’s when I started rollin’, drinkin’ my way back home”
Gretchen Wilson, “All Jacked Up”
“Oh, my God, it’s 2 o’clock/I can’t find my keys and my truck’s locked/So I grab a tire tool and I broke my window/Hurt my elbow, got me in through/Two foot later, backed into the light pole/All the town folk got a good show”
