All Time Favorite Conservative Songs!

Posted on 07/18/2003 11:20:57 AM PDT by ConservativeMan55

I decided to find some great Conservative songs. Please list your favorites that I haven't mentioned. I am sure there are a ton I haven't mentioned. I think Darrly Worley has one about a Vietnam POW, and I am sure there are some that are missing so please help me out!





Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue (The Angry American)
(Toby Keith)
©2002 Tokeco Tunes (BMI)

This was written a few days after the September 11th terrorist attacks. My father was a soldier in the Army in the ‘50s and always flew a flag to show his patriotism. I had just lost him in a car wreck six months before the attacks took place, so I wrote my feelings down. I never really intended for this to be a song. It was originally titled “Angry American.”



American Girls and American Guys We’ll always stand up and salute We’ll always recognize When we see Old Glory Flying There’s a lot of men dead So we can sleep in peace at night When we lay down our head

My daddy served in the army Where he lost his right eye But he flew a flag out in our yard Until the day that he died He wanted my mother, my brother, my sister and me To grow up and live happy In the land of the free.

Now this nation that I love Has fallen under attack A mighty sucker punch came flyin’ in From somewhere in the back Soon as we could see clearly Through our big black eye Man, we lit up your world Like the 4th of July

Hey Uncle Sam Put your name at the top of his list And the Statue of Liberty Started shakin’ her fist And the eagle will fly Man, it’s gonna be hell When you hear Mother Freedom Start ringin’ her bell And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you Brought to you Courtesy of the Red White and Blue

Justice will be served And the battle will rage This big dog will fight When you rattle his cage And you’ll be sorry that you messed with The U.S. of A. `Cause we`ll put a boot in your ass It`s the American way

Hey Uncle Sam Put your name at the top of his list And the Statue of Liberty Started shakin’ her fist And the eagle will fly Man, it’s gonna be hell When you hear Mother Freedom Start ringin’ her bell And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you Brought to you Courtesy of the Red White and Blue






Beer For My Horses
with Willie Nelson (Toby Keith, Scott Emerick) ©2002 Tokeco Tunes (BMI); Sony/ATV Songs LLC dba Tree Publishing Co./Big Yellow Dog Music (BMI) I had this title forever, and when Scott Emerick came up with a neat little melody lick, the two just went hand-in-hand. The song was written prior to September 11th. It’s about justice, but more so about the law of the Old West. It truly depicts how I feel about our justice system today. I had the privilege of having an American icon and hero of mine sing on here with me: Willie Nelson. Awesome.



Well a man come on the 6 o’clock news Said somebody’s been shot, somebody’s been abused Somebody blew up a building Somebody stole a car Somebody got away Somebody didn’t get too far yeah They didn’t get too far

Grandpappy told my pappy, back in my day, son A man had to answer for the wicked that he done Take all the rope in Texas Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys Hang them high in the street for all the people to see that

Chorus:

Justice is the one thing you should always find You got to saddle up your boys You got to draw a hard line When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune We’ll all meet back at the local saloon We’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds We’ve got too much corruption, too much crime in the streets It’s time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground Send ’em all to their maker and he’ll settle ’em down You can bet he’ll set ’em down ’cause

Chorus (x2)






It`s All Good
(Toby Keith, Scott Emerick) ©2002 Tokeco Tunes (BMI); Sony/ATV Songs LLC dba Tree Publishing Co./Big Yellow Dog Music (BMI)

Sometimes I draw inspiration from current events. This is one of those times. I felt like writing this song with a “good mood” approach during very blue times. No matter how bad it may appear to be in this country, we still live in the best place in the world. Period. Stream this track in Real Audio Stream this track in Windows Media

Mother earth has changed since I was a child The east is a beast and the west is really wild And the headlines say that the end looks grim And the future don’t look so bright

You can’t even open your mailbox, you can’t take a plane And everybody’s lookin’ for somebody to blame I think I’m gonna let the president Save this ol’ world tonight






It Works For Me
(Toby Keith, Scott Emerick) ©2002 Tokeco Tunes (BMI); Sony/ATV Songs LLC dba Tree Publishing Co./Big Yellow Dog Music (BMI) This is what happens when you mix great melody with great content. It’s not completely autobiographical now, but really closer to me as a 20-year-old. I still carry most of these true colors with me. Stream this track in Real Audio Stream this track in Windows Media

Never owned a brand new car Never worked in a white collar Never held a woman longer Than I held one single dollar I never went out chasin’ rainbows ‘Cause there can’t be that much to it Even if I found my pot of gold I know I’d piss right through it

I can’t remember ever wanting For one second of my life Even if I did it cost too much To ever pay the price I don’t dance out on the dark side Ain’t no secrets I have to tell So you don’t have to say a prayer for me I just said one for myself

Chorus: I’m livin’ my life Under my terms I’m callin’ the shots As far as I can see I don’t owe nobody nothin’ I don’t answer to a soul Might not work for you But it works for me

I’ve been bent and bruised and broken And flat busted once or twice I brought most of it upon myself But I never compromised My pride’s too hard to swallow So I’ve chewed a lot of it Mild-mannered and soft-hearted And hard-headed as you get I live out on the backroads Where I walk my country mile And if it’s so good in the city Why don’t anybody smile? The traffic’s always heavy And the air ain’t fit to breathe I ain’t saying that it’s wrong for you It just don’t make sense to me

Chorus






HANK WILLIAMS JR
Mr. Lincoln
by Hank Williams Jr. transcribed by Clay Logan

Chorus:

Mr. Lincoln I wish you were here The Republics changed alot in a hundred years I don't think its working like you planned Mr Lincoln we sure could use a hand

Verse:

I just read the headlines in the Nashville News And I wish i made this up but im afraid its true Cause a man was murdered for his money in the street

He was takin his wife to a nice place to eat When they caught the man he did 23 months of time He plead insanity like they do now all the time Sir what would you have done in 1859

Now if you shoot someone sir you can get off scott free its the latest thing mr Lincoln can you believe Now they sue the manufactures of the guns aint the law changed alot since 1861

Repeat chorus I just heard the new story on the radio they let dangerous men outta prison now yes sir im afraid its so cause theyre overcrowded and it was only his fifth offense and this time hes killed someone does that make any sense Now my lawyer called me about a nuisance case Cause everybody sues over any little thing these days

Well at least we're right all we gotta do is tell the truth.... he said youre living in the past you romantic fool i said you got that right i lean toward the older ways And theres damn few back woods lawyers left today

repeat chorus 2x





* Song: The Coalition to Ban Coalitions
* Artist: Hank Williams, Jr.

* Album: The Pressure is On (WEA / Atlantic, 1987)

The all-time best liberty song, containing the clearest libertarian sentiment, comes from country legend Hank Williams, Jr. If you hear it, you'll want to nominate it for Official Theme Song of the Libertarian Party.

I'll let the lyrics speak for themselves: "This is the coalition to ban coalitions / I'm not a politician, but I've got views / some folks want to ban cars, some want to get rid of Fender guitars / hey, you do your thing and we'll do our thing, too

...now they want to take my cigarettes and all my good whiskey / and these damn coalitions they are after you and me / they want to get rid of my .44s and all the R-rated films / if they only knew how much we'd all love to get rid of them." Somebody ought to approach Hank about joining the party.







* Song: God Bless The USA
* Artist: Lee Greenwood * Album: American Patriot (EMD / Capitol, 1992) I know this was George Bush's unofficial anthem during his second run for office, but it's a moving song --

Greenwood sings: "If tomorrow all the things were gone / I'd worked for all my life / And I had to start again / with just my children and my wife / I'd thank my lucky stars / to be living here today / 'Cause the flag still stands for freedom / and they can't take that away / I'm proud to be an American / where at least I know I'm free..."




Darryl Worley
Have you forgotten?
I hear people saying we don't need this war I say there's some things worth fighting for What about our freedom and this piece of ground? We didn't get to keep 'em by backing down They say we don't realize the mess we're getting in Before you start preaching Let me ask you this my friend

CHORUS 1 Have you forgotten how it felt that day To see your homeland under fire And her people blown away? Have you forgotten when those towers fell? We had neighbors still inside Going through a living hell And you say we shouldn't worry 'bout Bin Laden Have you forgotten?




HANK WILLIAMS. "Country Boy Can Survive"
The preacher man say's it's the end of time The Mississippi river, she's going dry The interest is up, and the stock market's down You only get mugged if you go down town I live back in the woods you see, My woman, my kids, and my dogs, and me

I got a shotgun, and a rifle, and a 4 wheel drive A Country boy can survive And a Country boy can survive See, i can plow a field all day long I can catch catfish, from dusk till dawn We make our own whisky, and our own smoke too Aint too many things these ole boys cant do, no We grow good ole tomatoes, make homemade wine

A Country boy can survive And a Country boy can survive Cause you cant starve us out, cant make us run Were the boys and girls raised with shotguns

We say grace, and we say Mam If you aint into that, we don't give a damn






IRAQ and I ROLL.
Clint Black
You can wave your signs and protest

against America taking a stand,

the stands America's taking

are the reason that you can.

If everyone would go for peace

there'd be no need for war.

But we can't ignore the devil,

he'll keep coming back for more.

Some see this in black and white,

others only gray.

We're not begging for a fight,

no matter what they say.

We have the resolution

that should put 'em all to shame.

It's a different kind of deadline

when I'm called in the game.

Iraq, I rack 'em up and I roll,

I'm back and I'm a hi-tech GI Joe.

I pray for peace, prepare for war

and I never will forget ~

there's no price too high for freedom

so be careful where you tread.

This terror isn't man to man,

they can be no more than cowards.

If they won't show us their weapons

we might have to show them ours.

Now it might be a smart bomb,

they find stupid people too.

If you stand with the likes of Saddam,

well, one might just find you.

Iraq, I rack 'em up and I roll,

I'm back and I'm a hi-tech GI Joe.

I got infrared, I got GPS,

I got that good old fashioned lead.

No price too high for freedom,

so be careful where you tread.

Now you can come along

or you can stay behind

or you can get out of the way.

But our troops take out the garbage

for the good old USA.

Iraq, I rack 'em up and I roll.

for the USA.





Charlie Daniels
The Last Fallen Hero.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The Last Fallen Hero"

Oh the cowards came by morning and attacked without a warning Leaving flames and death and chaos in our streets In the middle of this fiery hell brave heroes fell

In the skies of Pennsylvania on a plane bound for destruction With the devil and his angels at the wheel They never reached their target on the ground Brave heroes brought it down

Chorus: This is a righteous cause so without doubt or pause I will do what my country asks of me Make any sacrifice We’ll pay whatever price So the children of tomorrow can be free Lead on red, white and blue And we will follow you until we win the final victory God help us do our best we will not slack or rest Till the last fallen hero rests in peace

I would suggest ALL the songs from the musical 1776 -- great stuff.

Also the children's videos from the 70s show, School House Rock (I found the CD on the Internet somewhere and my kids are now bing indoctrinated on a daily basis). There is so much great stuff there I don't know where to begin.

Red White and Blue - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Red, White, and Blue

We don't have no plastic L.A. Frynds,
ain't on the edge of no popular trend.
Ain't never seen the inside of that magazine GQ.
We don't care if you 're a lawyer, or a texas oil man,
or some waitress busting ass in some liquor stand.
If you got Soul
We hang out with people just like you

My hair's turning white,
my neck's always been red,
my collar's still blue,
we've always been here
just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
we've always been,
Red, White, and Blue

Ride our own bikes To Sturgis
we pay our own dues,
smoking camels, drinking domestic brews
You want to know where I have been
just look at my hands
Yeah, I've driven by the White House,
Spent some time in jail.
Momma cried but she still wouldn't pay my bail.
I ain't been no angel,
But even God, he understands.

My hair's turning white,
my neck's always been red,
my collar's still blue,
we've always been here
just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
we've always been,
Red, White, and Blue

Yeah that's right!

My Daddy worked hard, and so have I,
paid our taxes and gave our lives
to serve this great country
so what are they complaining about

Yeah we love our families, we love our kids
you know it is love that makes us all so rich
That's where were at,
If they don't like it they can just
get the HELL out!

My hair's turning white,
my neck's always been red,
my collar's still blue,
we've always been here
just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
we've always been,
Red, White, and Blue

The Ramones

"Blitzkrieg Bop"

Hey ho, let's go
Hey ho, let's go

They're forming in a straight line
They're going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
The Blitzkrieg Bop

They're piling in the back seat
They're generating steam heat
Pulsating to the back beat
The Blitzkrieg Bop.

Hey ho, let's go
Shoot'em in the back now
What they want, I don't know
They're all reved up and ready to go

Don't Tread On Me

Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
Never begins it, never, but once engaged...
Never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage

Don't tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

Don't tread on me

Love it or live it, she with the deadly bite
Quick is the blue tongue, forked as lighting strike
Shining with brightness, always on surveillance
The eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance

Don't tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

Don't tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war

Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling on her tail

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

Don't tread on me

Artist: Pillar
Album: Fireproof
Song: Indivisible

For all the people in the world that don't understand
Exactly what it is we have here in this motherland
See the Father's hand started up a master plan
There's been many through the test of time take a stand
But had they ran who knows where we would be now
I thank God it's something I don't have to think about
Instead my thoughts are on the ones who laid it on the line
KIA gave their lives to let freedom shine
But in the meantime I think of those of your kind
And wonder how it is you get things so messed up inside your mind
Just think a second how long it's been going on before you
They're the one's who even helped you have the right to argue

Stop complaining move along
Open your eyes and see what's going on
We need to get back to the ways of the days of old
One nation under God indivisible

Chorus

All the people let me hear you give a holler
In God we trust, In God we trust
We stamp it on our penny, nickel, dime, quarter, dollar
In God we trust, In God we trust
The people of the nation let me hear you give a holler
In God we trust, In God we trust
We stamp it on our penny, nickel, dime, quarter, dollar
In God we trust, In God we trust

The other day I saw the news somebody else complaining
They want the motto taken off of the Benjamin Franklin
They got a problem with my God and that I believe in it
But the don't got a problem with the money when they spend it
They're so offended by 4 words that need no explanation
In GOD we trust the motto of this greatest nation
Not just a motto but something that we truly believe
If you don't like it you can pack a bag and you can leave

One nation under God indivisible
You can't take back that, that was never yours

Freewill - Rush

There are those who think that life has nothing left to chance,
A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance.

A planet of playthings,
We dance on the strings
Of powers we cannot perceive
"The stars aren't aligned,
Or the gods are malign..."
Blame is better to give than receive.

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose freewill.

There are those who think that they were dealt a losing hand,
The cards were stacked against them; they weren't born in Lotusland.

All preordained
A prisoner in chains
A victim of venomous fate.
Kicked in the face,
You can't pray for a place
In heaven's unearthly estate.

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose freewill.

Each of us
A cell of awareness
Imperfect and incomplete.
Genetic blends
With uncertain ends
On a fortune hunt that's far too fleet.

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose freewill.

What about Merle Haggard, "You're Walking on the Fighting Side of Me"? I think it addresses protestors better than any current song.

This Ain't No Rag It's A Flag
Charlie Daniels


This ain't no rag it's a flag
And we don't wear it on our heads
It's a symbol of the land where the good guys live
Are you listening to what I said
You're a coward and a fool
And you broke all of the rules
And you wounded our American pride

And now we're coming with a gun
And we know you're gonna run
But you can't find no place to hide
We're gonna hunt you down like a mad dog hound
Make you pay for the live you stole
We're all through talking and a messing around
And now it's time to rock and roll

These colors don't run and we're speaking as one
When we say united we stand
When you mess with one, you mess with us all
Every boy, girl, woman and man
You've been acting mighty rash
And talking that trash
Let me give you some advice
You can crawl back in your hole
Like a dirty little mole

But now it's time to pay the price
You might of shot us in the back
Now you have to face the fact
That the big boys' in the game
And the thunder's been crashing
And the lightning's been flashing
And now it's getting ready to rain

Chorus:
This is the United States of America
The land of the brave and the free
We believe in God and we believe in justice
We believe in liberty
You've been pulling our chain
We should've done something 'bout you a long time ago
But now the flag's flying high and the fur's gonna fly
And soon the whole world's gonna know

This ain't no rag, it's a flag
Old Glory red, white and blue
The stars and the stripes when it comes to a fight
We can do what we have to do
Our people stand proud
The American crowd is faithful, loyal and tough
We're good as the best and better than the rest
And you're gonna find out soon enough
When you look up in the sky
And you see the eagle fly
You better know he's a heading your way
Cause this ain't no rag it's a flag
And it stands for the USA
USA
USA
USA

Repeat Chorus

I'm not the brightest crayon in the box
Everyone says I'm dumber than a bag of rocks
I barely even know how to put on my own pants
But I'm a genius in France (yeah), genius in France, genius in France

Hoom chaka laka
Hoom chaka laka
Hoom chaka

I may not be the sharpest hunk of cheese
I got a negative number on my SATs
I'm not good looking and I don't know how to dance
But nevertheless and in spite of the evidence I am still widely considered to be
A genius in France, a genius in France, a genius in France

People say I'm a geek, a moronic little freak
An annoying pipsqueak with an unfortunate physique
If I was any dumber, they'd have to water me twice a week

But when the Mademoiselles see me, they all swoon and shriek
They dig my mystique, they say I'm c'est magnifique
When I'm in Par-ee, I'm the chic-est of the chic

They love my body odor and my bad toupee
They love my stripey shirt and my stupid beret
And when I'm sipping on a Perrier
In some cafe town in St. Tropez

It's hard to keep the fans at bay
They say, "Sign my poodle, s'il vous plait"
"Sign my poodle, s'il vous plait"

Hemenene humenene
himenene homenene
Poodle... poodle...

Folks in my hometown think I'm a fool
Got too much chlorine in my gene pool

A few peas short of a casserole
A few buttons missing on my remote control
A few fries short of a happy meal
I couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel

Instructions on the heel
Instructions on the heel

But when I'm in Provence, I get free croissants
Yeah, I'm the guy every French lady wants
And if you ask 'em why, you're bound to get this response
(He's a genius in France! Genius in France!)

That's right
(He's a genius in France, genius in France)
You know it
(He's a genius in France, genius in France, genius in France)

I'm not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree
But the folks in France, they don't seem to agree
They say, "Bonjour, Monsieur would you take ze picture with me?"

I say, "Oui, oui"
That's right, I say, "Oui, oui"
"Oui, oui"
He says, "Oui, oui"

I'm dumber than a box of hair
But those Frenchies don't seem to care
Don't know why, mon frere
But they love me there

I'm a genius in France
Yeah, I'm a genius in France

Gonna make a big splash when I show up in Cannes
Gonna make those Frenchies scream
"You ze man! You ze man! You ze man!"

Like a fine Renoir (waa), I've got that je me c'est quoi (quoi!)
Like a fine Renoir (ooh la la), I've got that je me c'est ...
Quoi quoi quoi quoi quoi, oo-we-oo
Quoi quoi quoi quoi quoi, oo-we-oo

Bow diddy bow di bow di bow bow diddy
Bow diddy bow di bow di bow bow diddy
Bow

[snort]

I'm a taco short of a combo plate
But by some twist of fate, all the Frogs think I'm great
Oh, the men all faint and the women scream
They like me more than heavy cream

When I'm in Versailles, I'm a popular guy
My oh my, I'm as French as apple pie (apple pie)
They think I'm awful witty, a riot and a half
When I tell a stupid joke, they laugh(haw haw haw haw haw)
And laugh (haw haw haw haw haw haw)

People in France have lots of attitude
They're snotty and rude, they like disgusting food
But when they see me, they just come unglued
They think that I am one happening dude

Bowm ba ba bowm ba bowm ba bowm
I'm about as sharp as a bowling ball
But they like me better than Charles de Gaulle

Entre nous, it's very true
The room temperature's higher than my IQ
But they love me more than Gerard Depardieu
How did this happen; I don't have a clue

Well, I'm not the quickest tractor on the farm
I don't have any skills or grace or charm
And most people look at me like I'm all covered with ants
But I'm a genius in France (yeah), genius in France, genius in France

And I'm never goin' back, I'm never goin' back
I'm never never never never goin' back home again
I'm tearin' up my return flight ticket
Gonna tell the folks back here where they can stick it

'Cause I'm never goin' back
I'm never goin' back
I'm never goin' back

The girls back home never gave me a chance
But I sho' 'nuff got them Frogs in some kinda trance
And I'm aware that it's a most improbable circumstance
But "Great Googily Moogily", I'm a genius in France

Every Frenchie that I meet
Just can't wait to kiss my feet
Get in line, pucker up! Tout Suite!

Bowm diddy bowm diddy bowm diddy

I'm gettin' even more famous by the hour
I'm stuffed with pastries and drunk with power
Now they're puttin' up my statue by the Eiffel Tower

A little more to the left, boys, a little more to the left
A little more to the left, boys, a little more to the left

I'm the biggest dork there is alive
My mom picked out my clothes for me 'till I was 35
And I forgot to mention
I'm not even welcome at the Star Trek convention

But the Frenchies think
That my poop don't stink
I'm a genius in France

Say, would you pass the Grey Poupon?
Merci beaucoup

Ragged Old Flag

by Johnny Cash

I walked through a county courthouse square,
On a park bench an old man was sitting there.
I said,"Your old courthouse is kinda run down."
He said,"Naw,it'll do for our little little town."
I said,"Your flagpole has leaned a little bit,
And that's a Ragged Old Flag you got hanging on it."

He said,"Have a seat", and I sat down.
"Is this the first time you've been to our little town?"
I said,"I think it is." He said,"I don't like to brag,
But we're kinda proud of that Ragged Old Flag."

"You see, we got a little hole in that flag there
When Washington took it across the Delaware.
And it got powder-burned the night Francis Scott Key
Sat watching it writing_Oh Say Can You See_.
And it got a bad rip in New Orleans
With Packingham and Jackson tuggin' at its seams."

"And it almost fell at the Alamo
Beside the Texas flag, but she waved on through.
She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville
And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill.
There was Robert E. Lee, Beauregard, and Bragg,
And the south wind blew hard on that Ragged Old Flag."

"On Flanders Field in World War I
She got a big hole from a Bertha gun.
She turned blood red in World War II
She hung limp and low by the time it was through.
She was in Korea and Vietnam.
She went where she was sent by her Uncle Sam."

"She waved from our ships upon the briny foam,
And now they've about quit waving her back here at home.
In her own good land she's been abused--
She's been burned, dishonored, denied and refused."

"And the government for which she stands
Is scandalized throughout the land.
And she's getting threadbare and wearing thin,
But she's in good shape for the shape she's in.
'Cause she's been through the fire before
And I believe she can take a whole lot more."

"So we raise her up every morning,
Take her down every night.
We don't let her touch the ground
And we fold her up right.
On second thought I DO like to brag,
'Cause I'm mighty proud of that Ragged Old Flag."

I never thought of Beer for my Horses as being patriotic. Now I have one more reason to love it. I'm not a huge country fan, but that song makes the hair on my neck stand on end.

(and of course no radio station up North here would ever have the guts to play it).

Not fair - most folks in the south don't exactly consider Baltimore, MD, Philadelphia PA, or Wilmington, DE to be down south and I've heard it played on stations in all 3 markets.

Fightin' Side Of Me
Written and sung by Merle Haggard

I hear people talkin' bad,
About the way we have to live here in this country,
Harpin' on the wars we fight,
An' gripin' 'bout the way things oughta be.
An' I don't mind 'em switchin' sides,
An' standin' up for things they believe in.
When they're runnin' down my country, man,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song I'm singin' be a warnin'.
If you're runnin' down my country, man,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

I read about some squirrely guy,
Who claims, he just don't believe in fightin'.
An' I wonder just how long,
The rest of us can count on bein' free.
They love our milk an' honey,
But they preach about some other way of livin'.
When they're runnin' down my country, hoss,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song I'm singin' be a warnin'.
If you're runnin' down my country, man,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song I'm singin' be a warnin'.
If you're runnin' down my country, man,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Forever Young by Bob Dylan



May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you.
May you always be courageous,
Stand upright and be strong,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.
