Rappers are not the only AWAKE Musicians
Professor Griff's recent interview reminded me of another musician, from a completely different genre, who is also AWAKE.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present for your consideration country music legend Merle Haggard.

First, let's review perhaps the best known song of a gullible, twenty something, Vietnam era Merle:

Fightin' Side of Me

I hear people talkin' bad,
About the way we have to live here in this country,
Harpin' on the wars we fight,
An' gripin' 'bout the way things oughta be.
An' I don't mind 'em switchin' sides,
An' standin' up for things they believe in.
When they're runnin' down my country, man,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song I'm singin' be a warnin'.
If you're runnin' down my country, man,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.







Coming up next, the AWAKE Merle Haggard.

RE: Rappers are not the only AWAKE Musicians
Circa 2005, from the Chicago Wind album, a grizzled, AWAKE Merle Haggard.

"Where's All The Freedom"

Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?
Is it still our creed from shore to shore?
Every soldier fights, should we read him his new rights?
There's not that many to read any more
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

Where's all the freedom that we fought to save?
Is it gone for good with yesterday?
Hey, it ain't no fun around and it's the same in every town
Ain't sure of the ten commandments anymore
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

My grandson done gone to battle
And I'm somewhere below Seattle
Can't afford to take my car to the grocery store
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

My grandson done gone to battle
And I'm somewhere below Seattle
Countin' the cars with police across the door
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

Where's all the freedom that we're prayin' for?
Are we a nation under God any more?
How long do we cower down, is this really still our ground?
Our country's like a prisoner of war
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

Once more, the AWAKE Merle Haggard.

America First

Why don't we liberate these United States,
We're the ones that need it worst.
Let the rest of the world help us for a change,
And let's rebuild America first.

Our highways an' bridges are fallin' apart:
Who's blessed an' who has been cursed?
There's things to be done all over the world,
But let's rebuild America first.

Yeah, men in position are backin' away:
Freedom is stuck in reverse.
Let's get out of Iraq an' get back on the track,
And let's rebuild America first.

Why don't we liberate these United States,
We're the ones who need it the most.
