Beer for My Horses

Synopsis: Bill Racklin is a deputy sheriff in Greer County Oklahoma, the crystal meth capital of the region. His girlfriend leaves him because he's inattentive to her, but things look up when his high-school sweetheart, Annie Streets, returns home to care for her ailing mother. Annie's step-father, Buck Baker, is the local heartless rich guy, buying up farmland. On a stakeout, Rack and two other deputies arrest four men stealing fertilizer to make crystal meth; one of the four is the brother of a notorious Mexican drug dealer. The drug lord arranges Annie's kidnapping and holds her to ransom his brother. Rack and the deputies, prisoner in tow, head for Mexico to rescue her.

All right.

We'll start this next set

with a song about

the North Texas,

Southern Oklahoma,

crystal meth,

amphetamine industry.

# Strap them kids in #

# Give them a little bit

Of vodka in a cherry coke #

# We're going to Oklahoma

To the family reunion #

# For the first time

In years #

# It's up at uncle Slayton's #

# 'Cause he's getting on

in years #

# He plays that Choctaw bingo

Every Friday night #

# You know he had

To leave Texas #

# But he won't say why #

# He owns a quarter section

Up by Lake Eufala #

# Caught a great big ol'

Blue cat #

# On a driftin' jug line #

# Sells his hardwood timber

To the shipping mill #

# Cooks that crystal meth

Because the shine don't sell #

# He cooks that crystal meth

Because the shine don't sell #

# You know he likes that money

He don't mind the smell #

# He plays that Choctaw bingo

Every Friday night #

# He drinks his Johnny Walker

At that Club 69 #

# We're gonna strap them

Kids in #

# Give'em a little bit

A Benadryl #

# And a cherry coke

We're goin' to Oklahoma #

# Gonna have us a time #

# Have us a time #

Well, here we go again, buddy.

Hey, Jer.

I sure like your new truck.

Get the hell out of here,


Or there's gonna be trouble.

See that?

It's my trailer, you cheater.

You tell your boyfriend

come on out here,

take a look at his new ride.

I told you, he ain't here.

I'll knock out

his headlights too.

Hey. I better get to this.

Whoa, Sandy. Norvel.

Get off my head.

Hey. Hey.

- Get off me.

Get your hands off me.

She's a cheater, Rack.

Hey. Hey. Settle down.

Tell me what happened.

My brother come up here today

to borrow my minnow bucket,

because he's going fishing

with Bobby Bell this afternoon.

So what?

He saw Jerry Buckey

sneaking in my trailer,

that's what!

Your brother didn't see

jack squat.

Sandy, now, let him talk.

Shut up, Lonnie.

Sandy, calm down.

Go ahead, Norvel.

Well, I raced right over here

from work,

and by God if I didn't see

Jerry Buckey's truck,

parked right here.

And I just


Well, partner,

that ain't Jerry Buckey's truck.

It ain't?

This truck here you tore up,

that belongs to Jay Boy Simpson.


Now, is it true?

Jerry Buckey been here

with you, baby?

You know me, Rack.

I'm a lot of things

but I ain't no cheater.

I would never even think

of cheating on Norvel.

I haven't even seen

Jerry Buckey

since last Friday.

- Hey, Rack.

Now, Sandy, you know

good and well Norvel loves you.

Oh, the hell he does.

He never takes me anywhere.

Why, he was telling me

the other morning

he had big, big plans

for you this weekend.


Ain't that right, Norvel?

Oh. Oh, yeah, Rack. It is.

I was gonna take here

to eat catfish.

You was?

You was gonna take me

to eat catfish?


And hushpuppies too?


Oh, Norvel.

I love catfish.

I know you do, baby.

Oh, Norvel.

I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry too, baby.

I love you, baby.

I love you too, baby.

Ain't love beautiful?

Let's roll.

All right, y'all,

take care.

We'll see y'all next week.

Bye, Rack.

Bye, Lonnie.

Thank you.

I don't want any thanks, either.

If he came in...

Hey, babe.

Where are we going?

"Hey, babe.

Where are we going?"

Cam, I'm late. I'm sorry.

There's late,

and there's too late.

You're the second.

I had to take that prisoner

over to Lawton.

What am I suppose to tell

the sheriff?

You tell him it's

your girlfriend's birthday

and you're suppose to be home

hours ago.

I did.

- Oh, yeah? What did he say?

He said, "Take that prisoner

over to Lawton."

You know what?
