Takin' My Country Back
Author: David A. Kent
Country music's got mamas and daddys
We got bar rooms and old heartbreak songs
But I'm here today to stand up and say
How I feel about my home sweet home
What's left, what's right and what's wrong...and
I'm taking my country back
Son, you ain't been doin' her right
Oh, I been watchin' you and I don't like
How you've been treatin' my stars and stripes
You took our jobs and sent 'em overseas
Now we owe billions to the red Chinese
You blew the budget and you botched Iraq
So I'm taking my country back.
We had a bundle in the treasury drawer
More than there had ever been there before
But every day we're drownin' deeper in dept
Maybe four years should be all you get
Then you gave tax breaks to the millionaires
And tried to make the workin' man pay
But you can't tax a man when his jobs not there
Now look at where we are today...hey
I'm taking my country back
Son, you ain't been doin' her right
Oh I been watchin' you and I don't like
How you been treatin' my stars and stripes
You've got too many fancy friends for me
The Saudis treat you like you're royalty
You blew the budget and you botched Iraq
Now I'm takin' my country back
Now I can understand why you were hot
'Cause Bin Laden never did get caught
So you said we had Saddam to blame
Tried to tell us it was all the same
But now the years roll by and our kids keep dyin'
You don't even have a plan to bring 'em home
And those W.M.D. you promised on T.V.
Hey admit it, you figured it wrong...so I'm takin' my country back
Now you don't know my name, but you know who I am
I'm your everyday work hard, play hard
Raise kids and pray hard common man
And lord knows I love this land...that's why
I'm taking my country back
Son, you ain't been doin' her right
Oh I been watchin' you and I don't like
How you been treatin' my stars and stripes
You say "unite" but you divide us more
Cussin' each other on the Senate floor
Ain't we supposed to be above all that?
Hey I'm taking my country back
I got my family and my church and flag...
Now I'm takin' my country back
