‘Uneasy Rider’ by Charlie Daniels – Classic Hit or Miss

“Uneasy Rider” is a 1973 song written and performed by American singer and multi-instrumentalist Charlie Daniels. It consists of a narrative that is spoken rather than sung over a guitar melody and is sometimes considered a novelty song. It was released as a single and appeared on Daniels’ album Honey in the Rock which is also sometimes known as Uneasy Rider.

The narrator protagonist of “Uneasy Rider” is a long-haired marijuana smoker driving a Chevrolet with a “peace sign, mag wheels, and four on the floor.” The song is a spoken-word description of an interlude in a trip from a non-specified location in the Southern United States to Los Angeles, California. When one of the narrator’s tires goes flat in Jackson, Mississippi, he stops at a “redneck” bar where he encounters several local residents who question his manners, physical appearance, and choice of car. In order to extricate himself from a potential physical altercation, the narrator accuses one of the locals of being a spy, then escapes from the bar and drives away as soon as his tire is repaired.
