The Lyrics

For the record, Crystal Gayle has brown eyes, and is from Kentucky. (In fact, she's the much-younger sister of Loretta Lynn, and the cousin of the woman with the all-time most-perfect name for a country singer: Patty Loveless.) Kentucky hasn't gone Democratic (making it, in today's terms, a "Blue State") since Jimmy Carter in 1976. But then, she's not the narrator here. Not sure what State the narrator calls home, but, at the rate Georgie Bush and the Republicans are going, it may not matter.
(piano intro)

Don't know why I vote for you.
Don't know why you've been untrue.
My trust, this you blew.
And don't it make my Red State Blue.

You lied about the war.
I don't know just what for.
Soldiers you still screw.
And don't it make my Red State Blue.

Tell you a secret, you've told us lies.
Don't care your reasons, or your alibis.
Tell me the Democrats will make me cry?
Is that all you got? Then just say goodbye!

You did so mean to treat us bad.
WIth Bill, good times we had.
Better than I ever knew.
And don't it make my Red State
don't it make my Red State
don't it make my Red State
Blue!

Don't it make my Red State
don't it make my Red State
don't it make my Red State
Blue!

Don't it make my Red State
don't it make my Red State
don't it make my Red State
Blue!

(piano intro)

Very clever title, but the introduction is confusing and the parody is stale. Since Kentucky has 2 Republican senators and a Republican governor and consistently votes Republican in presidential elections, it is a Red State. You were probably trying to say that, if and when, the state does go Democratic it will be a Blue State, but it wasn't one of your best sentences.

"""Don't know why I vote for you.""" -- As if you voted for a Republican in the first place. .. that's not very honest... As far as lying goes, give it a rest. No one lied but your last president.. oh, maybe you are talking about Clinton. Pretty weak song, sounds rushed to me... but then again; that's what you do!

Not one of your best, but clever title sub and it kept me interested 'til the end, which is more than I can say for *some* other political parodies.

red ant; being that the song repeated itself over and over at the end, suppose that means it doesn't take a whole lot to keep you interested... telling!

Linda you ignorant, lying lunatic. Did you escape from the assylum or were you granted a pass. Let's recap, shall we? Who lied about everything having to do with Iraq? Who lied about the republican pedophiles in Congress? I know that you religious nuts make up your own rules, but could you please explain to me why the republicans in Congress who practice pedophilia are better people than a President who had consensual sex with an adult? Your run is over - you know it, the American People know it and even Bob Dole knows it. The corruption and sexual perversion in your party has turned off mainstream America - not to mention the death toll and innocent victims in the unjust Iraqi war or the fact that it's been five years and you still can't find a 7 ft tall man, wearing a bedspread, talking on his cellphone while he walks the desert. good riddance you dishonest pervert - HUMAN KILLER.
