The Lyrics

Presidential candidate Fred Thompson was once a lobbyist for the Tennessee Savings and Loan League, and he successfully lobbied Congress to pass the Garn - St Germain Depository Institutions Act, which was a major contributor to the subsequent Savings and Loan crisis of the 80s.
Oooo... Tennessee

Is he right?
So well-bred
Preferred to Gore
A common thread
Is he the sort
Who isn't bought
And pulls us from Iraq?

Oooo... Tennessee

Is he right
So well-read?
Is he level in the head?
Is he the sort
That you've thought has led
And set us far ahead?

Oooo... Tennessee

Oooo... Oh Tennessee

Does he talk
About issues?
Is his voice reminding you
Of his characters
And Watergate guys too
Really, of the things he'll do,
His one mistake
Accidentally set our loans aflame

Have to be honest. . .not sure if this is a tribute, or a question for Fred Thompson:) Either way it paced well and was very creative.

Thanks, Alvin, AFW, & Below Average Dave. BTW, BAD, I'm not a fan of Fred, actually. I just made this as a question to those who do like him. He's certainly better than Bush and Guiliani, but his lobbyist past concerns me.

The best thing to come out of Tennessee is Jack Daniels. They should stick to that. 555

Perfect pacing and rhyming... I can't say the same about Fred Thompson. Great actor, very questionable presidential material. 555
