It doesn’t make sense in “normal” English. It’s maybe something someone from a state in the Bible Belt of America could say but I don’t know, I’m not from there.

Maybe is something he does deliberately, like in songs like " I used to could"

According to this (American) academic, it's a common mistake there:

I'd never heard it used before the song, but I have heard one of my favourite singer-songwriters (Cory Branan) say it, and he's from Memphis. But he's also an MK fan, so maybe he got it from him!

I use it myself in certain situations and I'm not from Memphis!    ;D

The older I get the list of things that I used to could do gets longer :)
