2. Steve Earle kicks ass!!!
Its christmastime in washington
The democrats rehearsed
Gettin into gear for four more years
Of things not gettin worse

The republicans drink whiskey neat
And thanked their lucky stars
They said, He cannot seek another term
Therell be no more FDRs

I sat home in Tennessee
Staring at the screen
With an uneasy feeling in my chest
And Im wonderin what it means

So come back, Woody Gguthrie
Come back to us now
Tear your eyes from paradise
And rise again somehow

If you run into Jesus
Maybe he can help you out
Come back, Woody Guthrie, to us now

I followed in your footsteps once
Back in my travelin days
Somewhere I failed to find your trail
Now Im stumblin through the haze

But theres killers on the highway now
And a man cant get around
So I sold my soul for wheels that roll
Now Im stuck here in this town


Theres foxes in the hen house
Cows out in the corn
The unions have been busted
Their proud red banners torn
To listen to the radio
Youd think that all was well
But you and me and cisco know
Its going straight to hell

So come back, Emma Goldman
Rise up, Old Joe Hill
The barracades are goin up
They cannot break our will

Come back to us, Malcolm X
And Martin Luther King
Were marching into Selma
As the bells of freedom ring
