New James McMurtry Bush Sucks Song: "Cheney's Toy" - Free Download Today! (Will Feature Fan Videos)
Edited on Mon Feb-04-08 11:15 AM by Hissyspit
NOTE: I'm not sure if the free download requires a monthly subscription to eMusic.com for $9.99 a month. I'm already a member. But at the least, scroll down for the lyrics to the new song.

In preparation for new album Just Us Kids

JAMES McMURTRY OFFERS FREE mp3 OF NEW POLITICAL SONG AND ANNOUNCES MAKE-YOUR-OWN-VIDEO CONTEST

Cheneys Toy available in time for Super Tuesday as free mp3 download via eMusic exclusive on Monday February 4

AUSTIN, Texas Singer/songwriter James McMurtry is once again making a political statement through his music. On his new song Cheneys Toy, McMurtry picks up where he left off with his controversial anthem We Cant Make it Here. Cheneys Toy reminds us that the war in Iraq is still going on with veiled references to Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib and the stark image of a soldier who returned from the conflict, blind and brain damaged.

In order to make sure people get the message, McMurtry is giving away the song for free on February 4 exclusively through eMusics Daily Download. On the Super Tuesday primary day (February 5) fans will be able to download the mp3 from McMurtrys MySpace page and Lightning Rod Records website (links below).

McMurtry and Lightning Rod Records are encouraging fans to use the free mp3 to create their own videos and post them online. McMurtry will choose the best videos and post them on his official MySpace page and website. If needed, fans can create videos using slideshow applications at RockYou.com. Creators of each of the top five video creators will receive t-shirts and autographed copies of McMurtrys new album, Just Us Kids (in stores April 15, 2008). McMurtrys choice for the best overall video will also receive an 8 Gb Apple iPod nano with video capabilities. Fans can send links to their videos to mcmurtryvideo@gmail.com .

We Cant Make it Here reverberated wildly across the internet and the airwaves, igniting a grassroots firestorm that has brought legions of new fans to the singer/songwriters work. Fan-made videos of We Cant Make It Here have been viewed more than 170,000 times on YouTube.

JAMES McMURTRY
"Cheney's Toy"


Another unknown soldier
Another lesson learned
Kick the gas can over
Strike a match get back and watch that sucker burn

Keep smiling for the camera
Keep waving for the crowd
Don't let up for an instant
Stay the course and make your mama proud

You're the man
Show'em what your made of
You're no longer daddy's boy
You're the man
That they're all afraid of
But you're only Cheney's toy

Another unknown soldier
Who's seen it all before
All in the name of Jesus
Behind the razor wire and shackled to the floor

Just keep smiling at the cameras
And keep that twinkle in your eye
We don't need to know the answers
Just hit your marks and say your lines

You're the man
Show'em what your made of
You're no longer daddy's boy
Take a stand
Give 'em what they paid for
But you're only Cheney's toy

They'll take a fork and turn you over
While the fat lady sings
One more pin on one more shoulder
Is all the future brings
For another unknown soldier
Who don't know his own name
And he don't get any older
And he can't see for the shrapnel in his brain

Ain't you grand
When the guns are blazin'
Bring 'em on
Cheney's toy

Bring 'em on
Cheney's toy

(Multi-Chorus)
