George Jones, Curtis Loew,
Man I miss the Man In Black,
Beauty queens, Levi's jeans,
I want my country back,
Just gimme my country back.

Politics, lobbyists,
Honesty is what they lack,
Broken homes, bankrupt loans,
I want my country back,
Just gimme my country back.

(chorus)
Don't take my freedom away,
Don't tell me how to pray,
I have a right to say I think something's wrong.
This ain't no black or white,
No left, no right,
And D.C., they don't know jack,
And I want my country back.
Just gimme my country back.

Billionaires, they don't care,
If the working man falls through the crack,
High gasoline, and more meth-amphetamines,
I want my country back,
Just gimme my country back.

(chorus)
Don't take my freedom away,
Don't tell me how to pray,
I have a right to say I think something's wrong.
This ain't no black or white,
No left, no right,
And D.C., they don't know crap,
And I want my country back.
Gimme my country back.

(repeat 1st chorus and then vamp out with last lines)
