"Red, White, And Blue" as written by and Van Zant/van Zant/warren/warren....
We don't have no plastic L.A. Frynds,
Ain't on the edge of no popular trend.
Ain't never seen the inside of that magazine GQ.
We don't care if you 're a lawyer, or a Texas oil man,
Or some waitress busting ass in some liquor stand.
If you got Soul
We hang out with people just like you

[Chorus]
My hair's turning white,
My neck's always been red,
My collar's still blue,
We've always been here
Just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
We've always been,
Red, White, and Blue

Ride our own bikes to Sturgis
We pay our own dues,
Smoking camels, drinking domestic brews
You want to know where I have been
Just look at my hands
Yeah, I've driven by the White House,
Spent some time in jail.
Momma cried but she still wouldn't pay my bail.
I ain't been no angel,
But even God, he understands.

[Chorus]

Yeah that's right!
My Daddy worked hard, and so have I,
Paid our taxes and gave our lives
To serve this great country
So what are they complaining about

Yeah we love our families, we love our kids
You know it is love that makes us all so rich
That's where were at,
If they don't like it they can just
Get the hell out!

[Chorus]

Oh, oh, red, white, and blue
Red, white, and blue
Oh, oh, red, white, and blue

    General CommentKeeebler7, that is probably the most anti-American thing you could say. Since our founding fathers started this country, it has been about one thing: Change. Laws have changed, dozens of amendments added to the constitution, the meanings of which have been contested for hundreds of years by the Supreme Court. If anything, trying to change things when something isn't quite "clicking" right is the only thing that could possibly be considered American. If we hadn't changed anything in the past 100 years, African Americans would still be segregated against and Women would still have little to no rights outside of the Kitchen. Even our forefathers knew that the words of the constitution would need to be changed and modified, and that it was just a guideline by which to form our country...so why can't you understand that. I have to say that this is a pretty unamerican song, mainly because of the "get the hell out" lyric, but also because of the "blue collar" reference. If you're all Blue Collar and you think you ARE what this country is, then why do you defend a government that is setting our country up to tear down the blue collar worker and send all blue collar jobs overseas in favor of an entirely white collar society? Wake up -- you're being played for a fool.

    General CommentThey should've made the lyric "I don't like you if you're Red, Black, or Queer, and if you don't like it then get the hell out of here!"

    That would've made it truly patriotic, in the Keeebler7 sense of the term.
