Quick poll, especially among those of you that have spent most of your life in urban areas: If I said "I done told you once, you old son of a bitch, I'm the best there ever was," would you know what I was referencing?

I get the reference when you say it like this. I think if it came randomly in the middle of something else, I wouldn't realize it was a quote. ‎· Spidra Webster

Yes, but I am also young enough to also have seen the "urban" movie whose soundtrack the song appeared on, in the theater. ‎· April ☕

Know it enough to know there was a nice version that used "gun". My elementary school music teacher could never remember which version my classmate had on record day, and the song would typically abruptly end after that phrase. ‎· sglassme

Interesting. I honestly thought that was a universal reference, but I guess that just shows my bias. ‎· Mr. Noodle

I knew it was familiar to me, but not well enough to name the exact derivation. The closest I came to in my mind was the Johnny Cash connection, but of course that was a later cover. A casual cultural overview of the song for those who are interested: http://www.avclub.com/article/charlie-daniels-the-devil-went-... ‎· Micah

Redacting my earlier comment. When I first saw that quote, I thought of Charlie Daniels but then someone else in the thread mentioned Johnny Cash and I got confused. But yes, I do recognize the lyric and can say that I had a 45 of it shortly after it came out. FWIW, I grew up SW Florida in 1970s and 1980s before moving north for college and career. ‎· Stephen Francoeur

Yup. Then again, I grew up in a farm town and that song was literally inescapable. ‎· Hookuh Tinypants

I know it, but only because a friend put it on a mixtape for me in college. (Though she came from a far more urban area that I did.) ‎· laura x
