“The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” is about the Danville train, the main supply line into Richmond during the War Between the States. During the Siege of Petersburg Stoneman’s Yankees “tore up the track again.” The siege lasted from June 1864 until April 1865, when both Petersburg and Richmond fell. The Confederates were starving: “We were hungry; Just barely alive.” The South lost but forever afterwards, Southerners vowed to rise again. Perhaps that is what is a-happening now at this point in our history with the rise of Tea Parties, emphasis on honoring the Constitution and people’s concerns with loss of liberties and the demise of capitalism.
FORGET ‘My Country Tis of Thee.’ America’s new song is “PAY ME MY MONEY DOWN.”
Corporations do it, banks do it, Wall Street’s a doing it, so why not us working stiffs? March on Washington and surround the White House, chanting to Mr. Obama: “PAY ME MY MONEY DOWN.” Afterall, Obama loves chants, doesn’t he? Do you think we can enlist “The Boss” Mr. Springsteen as our leader?
Don’t worry about that nasty threat of “go to jail.” That’ll never happen again, as our great new leader of America’s Treasury and Income Tax Departments, Timothy Geithner, has shown by example. Secretary of the Treasury Geithner says to follow his lead and don’t bother paying your taxes. “Go to jail” ain’t never gonna happen no more. The worst to expect is that you may be asked to fill a high-paying, fat cat goverment position – like Secretary of the Treasury, in charge of the IRS. OH GLORY!
Poor Obama! Where’s HIS country music? Can a man be elected president of these United States without the backing of real American music? I don’t think so. Those Germans and Euro-peons may love the guy, God bless em, but these folks here in this video get to vote for the Leader of the Free World. So long, it’s been good to know ye, Obama. “Auf Wiedersehen” until we all learn to speak French or one of those other useless Euro-lingos. For now – we’re all just raisin’ McCain.
If that’s not enough “raisin’ McCain” for you, they are giving away a FREE download of the MP3 file at: JohnRich.com.
