A song for George W. Bush

Okay, so Iris Dement wasn't talking about Republicans. But the deal is, I feel the same way about folks who betrayed the nation by putting us into two unwinnable wars and causing the deaths of thousands for the profit of Vice President Halliburton's company. Their invisible sky demon that they worship might forgive them. But I won't.

This is "God May Forgive You (But I Won't)".

-- Badtux the Music Penguin


  1. It's stupid to think that jesus would love anyone more today than he did went he walked this planet. Assuming he actually did walk this planet.

  2. Holy shit. She is a terrible singer.

    Kind of an amusing song, to hear once.


  3. It's a classic country music sound, JzB, i.e., not supposed to sound like a modern pop tart with auto-tune and tone smoothing and such. Listen to some old Loretta Lynn or early Dolly Parton and you hear about the same, Patsy Cline was a bit lower and boomier but had some of the same vocal tics, etc. About the only "classic" female country artist that has close to a pop smooth voice is Tammy Wynette, IMHO.

    Imagine hearing this voice across a scratchy AM radio with tinny speakers in a pickup truck with a bed full of hay for the cows and you'll understand why it was the most common kind of female voice on the country airwaves back in the day. Different technology, different sound, different days...
