DEA Blues, Merle Haggard, Cocaine and Chemtrails

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.

DEA Blues

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
G7 C
ain't no different than a 'No Knock Raid'."

This song is stuck in my

This song is stuck in my head!

"What I live for is a chance to change and be everything I can be,

What I love is, someone bright enough to see..

What I hate is what I hate, and I always will

and what I hate is, someone mad enough to kill.."

Will be buying this CD.

at least

Mama tried

Good Ol Merle Haggard...

Reagan liked his music so much he gave Merle a pardon!
Good Stuff here...


"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

What was the pardon for?

What was the pardon for?

If i remember rightly

the pardon was for armed robbery but i might be wrong. The information about it is out there. Its a cool story actually.
Some people dont like Reagan. I on the other hand do. He was the
real deal until that Hack Bush took over his presidency....

I just attempted to "grab"

I just attempted to "grab" this song using http://www.youtube-mp3.org/

however, it said: Google Inc. doesn't want you to convert this video.
Please sign a petition to change their mind:

I have NEVER gotten this message using youtube-mp3 before..

This song is getting highly censored.

Hey, nice to hear him singing

Hey, nice to hear him singing about very important stuff.. bumperino for sure.

Couldn't find any video's on

Couldn't find any video's on Youtube, So I just made my own. Check it out - http://youtu.be/yT33FKsG3c8 .

I attempted to mirror it- but

I attempted to mirror it- but got a copyright notice immediately from EMI and said the video would be banned. I just deleted it, instead of acknowledging the copyright strike, which probably would have put my account in bad standing.. You didn't get a copyright notice?

Yeah, i got a notice from EMI

Yeah, i got a notice from EMI telling me the song can not be viewed in Japan, but I just ignored it. I am guessing Merle doesn't mind a fan helping him spread his words to a wider audience. Interesting to note that I couldn't find one song from the album while searching YouTube. Whether its Censorship to this album or Merle's inexperience in marketing his music using technology, I am not really sure.

Thank you for doing that!

Thank you for doing that! It's really a great song, and it's refreshing to hear someone sing about something that matters finally.

Thanks for the bump
