"Long Dark Night" as written by and Fogerty....
George is in the jungle
Knockin' on the door
Come to get your children
Wants to have a war

Come on
Lord, you better run
Be a long dark night
Before this thing is done

Brownie's in the outhouse
Katrina on the line
Governments a disaster
But George, he says it's fine

Come on
Lord, you better run
Be a long dark night
Before this thing is done

Rummy's in the kitchen
Messin' with the pan
Dickie's in the back
Stealin' everything he can

Come on
Lord, you better run
Be a long dark night
Before this thing is done

You better run
You better run
Lord, you better run
You better run

Runnin' down the highway
Shoutin' to the Lord
George's got religion
And you know he can't afford more, yeah

Lord, you better run
Be a long dark night
Before this thing is done

Be a long dark night
Before this thing is done
Oh Lord

    General Commentthis song is pretty apparent - it is about the bush administration, and their handling of the war, hurricane katrina, and other issues. John Fogerty has a history of anti-war positions, and this song is no different. that said, it is a rather compelling song.
