DEA Blues, Merle Haggard, Cocaine and ChemtrailsSubmitted by TexanInSweden on Fri, 07/13/2012 - 17:07
Just listened to Merle Haggard's new album Working in Tennesse. Wow. Here are some of the lyrics to the track 'What I Hate'
Update: Couldnt find a youtube vid so i made my own and uploaded it, pass it around - http://youtu.be/yT33FKsG3c8
What I hate is a statesman speaking out of both sides of his mouth.
What I hate is a war still going on down in the south.
What I live for is a chance to change a little bit of it all.
What I hate is most folks don't seem to care at all.
What I hate is looking up and seeing chemtrails in a clear blue sky today.
What I hate is geting roadblocks on a highway in my way.
What I love is someone bright enough to see.
Now we cant change the whole wide world, maybe we change our neighborhood.
Anyhow I got inspired, so i added some new lyrics to track 3 'Cocaine Blues'
Hope you enjoy it.
adapted from the song Cocaine Blues by T.J. Arnall
Early one evening while settling down.
I rolled a joint before I rolled downtown
In busts my door in a 'No Knock' a'rest
I grabbed my lovin' 44 and laid 'em all to rest
Got up next morning and I grabbed that gun
Took a shot of cocaine and away I run
Made a good run but I run too slow
They overtook me down in Juarez Mexico
Late in the hot joints smoking a dill
In walked the DEA from Capitol Hill
He said "Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown
You're the dirty hack that shot our federals down"
Said "yes oh yes my name is Willy Lee
If you've got the warrant just a-read it to me
Shot them down because they broke the law
ya cant bust into a man's home with guns drawn."
When I was arrested I was dressed in black
They put me on a train and they took me back
Had no friend for to go my bail
They slapped my dried up carcass in that country jail
Early next morning bout a half past nine
I spied the DEA man coming down the line
Talked and he coughed as he cleared his throat
He said come on you dirty hack into that district court
Into the courtroom my trial began
Where I was handled by twelve honest men
Just before the jury started out
I saw the little judge commence to look about
In about five minutes in walked the man
Holding the verdict in his right hand
The man said "Jury Nullification, You can go free"
I hollered "God Almighty is look'in down on me"
The judge fumed as he squirmed in pain
then asked the juryman to please explain -
said "In '76 our countryman stood their ground
We can't forget the lives that they laid down
Warrantless searches by the king's brigade
ain't no different than a 'No Knock Raid'."
