Play a political Song

Any Genre

You know.. anti-establishment songs or "what the fuck" stuff of any political nature.

I'll start it off with some mighty thin, but not thin enough, tater stew.


Misty Mountain "Dust Bowl Blues"

Talking Dust Bowl Blues
(Woody Guthrie)

Back in nineteen twenty seven
I had a little farm and I called it heaven
Prices up and the rain come down
I hauled my crops all into town
Got the money...bought clothes and groceries...
Fed the kids..and raised a family

But the rain quit and the wind got high
Black old dust storm filled the sky
I swapped my farm for a Ford machine
Poured it full of this gas-i-line
And started...rocking and a-rolling
Over the mountains...out towards the 'ole Peach bowl

Way up yonder on a mountain road
I had a Hot motor and a heavy load
Going purty fast, wasn't even stopping
Bouncing up and down like popcorn a-popping
Had a breakdown..sort of a nervous bustdown of some kind
there was a feller there a mechanic feller
n'said it was En-gine trouble

Way up yonder on a mountain curve
Way up yonder in a piney wood
I gave that rolling Ford a shove
An' I's a gonna coast just fars as I could

Commenced coastin..picking up speed
Was a hairpin turn..I didn't make it

Man alive, I'm a'telling you
The fiddles and guitars really flew
That Ford took off like a flying squirrel
Flew halfway around the world

Scattered wives and childrens
All over the side of that mountain

We got out to the west coast broke
So dad-gum hungry I thought I'd croak
An' I bummed up a spud or two
Wife fixed up a tater stew
We poured the kids full of it

Mighty thin stew though
You could read a magazine
Right through it

Always have figured
If that damn it had been a little bit thinner
Some of these here politicians
Could of seen through it
