Rush Limbaugh (an American folk song)
A bit of background.
I wouldn't normaly do a political song, but lately at night
when I least expect it the ghost of Woody Guthrie has
been visiting me and feeding me material.
Now Woodys a nice enough fellow but he's kinda creepy
so I asked him to leave me alone. He said that I he would
if I recorded this song.
I said 'but Woody, what the hell do I know about folk music'
to which he replied 'don't B.S. me man, i've heard your music
you don't know much anyways and this is no time to go getting
uppity about it'.
Well he had me there..
So in the case of you being a fan, don't hate me for this song..
hate Woody.. and understand that no matter what, I am just a
regular guy making some simple music. Rush Limbaugh will
still be much richer and have more power at the end of the day
than all of us no matter what a simple man like me could toss at
him. So don't go getting all funny with me telling me I might
hurt his feelings, he can dish it out so I reckon he can take a bit
That being said, I present a simple song in the design of American
Rush Limbaugh, (an american folk song)
Rush limbaugh Rush Limbaugh tell us what to do
so many entrhalled with the venom you spew
Mix hatred with bigots and see what you brew
and the people you reach most they haven't a clue
CHORUS: theres a special place for you
hells too cold for what you do
and all the mistruths you have told
wont get you back the soul you've sold
Rush limbaugh Rush Limbaugh always on the right
the mothers who listen send their kids to fight
in two foreign wars which you seem to delight
And the doves will be bled by the hawks you incite.
Rush limbaugh Rush Limbaughyour safe in your booth
And the lies that you cast some digest as the truth
one gets what they give but you get what you take
when things are their worst the more money you make
Rush limbaugh Rush Limbaugh addicted to pills
and preaches to others about others ills
the more he's exposed the more he sedates
the calmer things are the more he gets irate
I like political songs. one thing with your song...you assume he has a soul to sell.
well written and recorded. it has a classic sound.
Mostly the soundclick charts are silly kids stuff... one certainly can't take them seriously.
But when a song like this is flashing at #1 in Folk and #3 in Rock over 200,000 other songs and without any paid promo and I am getting the kind of feedback in my personal email like I have with this one (both pro and con) well, I think the extra inch of exposure is dandy.
Thanks to all for putting and keeping it there for a short time.
If you liked the song...
You might enjoy the video..
Unlike the song the video is steeped in political parody, .. just so there is no suprises.
Nicely done!! 8)
