The Lyrics

The narrator knows a thing or two about Alabama. And whiskey. But he doesn't seem to know a damn thing about war. Or peace. Or anything that would benefit the nation he claims to lead.
Well, show me the way
to the next risky war.
Oh, don't ask why.
Oh, don't ask why.
Show me the way
to the next risky war.
Oh, don't ask why.
Oh, don't ask why.
For if we don't find
the next risky war
my legacy will die.
My legacy will die.
My lega...
my lega...
my legacy will die.

AWOL in Alabama.
No Nam, I had to say goodbye.
Brought back that war-lie drama.
My wars are risky.
Oh, you know why.

Well, show me the way
to the next rights abuse.
Oh, don't ask why.
Oh, don't ask why.
Show me the way
to the next rights abuse.
Oh, don't ask why.
Oh, don't ask why.
For if we don't find
the next rights abuse
my legacy will die.
My legacy will die.
My lega...
my lega...
my legacy will die.

AWOL in Alabama.
No Nam, I had to say goodbye.
Brought back that war-lie drama.
My wars are risky.
Oh, you know why.

AWOL in Alabama.
No Nam, I had to say goodbye.
Brought back that war-lie drama.
My wars are risky.
Oh, you know why!
