This song is a classic, not only for its violent yet playful message, but also for the instrumentation and style. Not yr typical country, it has a more mexi-cali feel, with the trumpet and the accordion borrowing from the vocal lead. Many people have covered this, but the original is still the best. It more or less tells of an unrelenting ladies man that gets killed by his jealous woman after promising never to go pussy-huntin again. The final tag (as from the tombstone) being "Now there goes Al Dexter, he always had his fun, but with some lead she shot him dead, his honkin days are done." Perfect addition to any party or drinkin night, its fun but a little sick, the way we po-mo party people like it.
