I didn't take it that way.  My husband said the same thing... what's does F O G stand for? lol    I wish someone knew the answer to this...  Giggles and AntsyAshley maybe you could ask JJ at the Baltimore show... How bout it?
Here is the question?
"what exactly in being said in the first 2 lines of Dirtfloor Cracka?", it isn't in the written lyrics and some of the words can't be deciphered.

I'm hearing something along the lines of "no______dream, we need some of them collard greens. no ever ____ love with the whip. no suffer the trip, dip." weird thing is, it sounds like airport in the first blank... can't decipher the second one at all, though. But them's just my interpretations.

pretty sure its a couple of folks nicknames(maybe even movie characters), especially since the second line starts with "we"

we've been down this road b4, and i cant for the life of me recall.

also, i believe there is a bamboo room show where he speaks it for everyone w/o the guitar going.  i'll try to track it down.

OK.... after listening to it 30 times this morning...

"Looking to import dreams
we need some of them collard greens
No air, no effort, the whip
Don't suffer the trip, Dip"
 
My interpretation would be that its as much about the way that so many of the good things of the Southern culture have been stolen and misused or bastardized by people from the rest of the country or from other countries. The chorus would point towards that as well... "All they've ever known, the TV taught 'em"... as well as the rest of the lyrics...

But again, that's just my interpretation.... I've been wrong before.

I'm too lazy to walk across the room to my ipod, but the acoustic version of the SSSJ was recorded by our usual gang, and they did a fantastic job - if you have that on an archive you might be able to pull the lyrics out from there.

I can't believe hollis hasn't figgered this thing out yet.

funny thing about the whole airport/import deal, Clay. I only caught it when I changed from listening to the studio version to the 2010 Jam Cruise version. I was rewinding and listening to it over and over the whole way to work (can you rewind a CD?) and suddenly import floated into my head. Its that first word that just doesn't come out clearly for some reason. Maybe tox is right... need to find an acoustic version.

so is he really saying  F  O  G   not  Frost  OGreens  If that is correct, I don't know how i ciphered that out, cause I sure didn't know what F  O  G stood for.  Maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket.
