"Baby's a Red" as written by Aaron James Babcock, Collin Rigsby, Jared Keith Rigsby and Timothy Ryan Skipper....
Oh oh little red,
With your heart in Stalingrad,
Oh, it kills me how they hate you,
But they just don't understand.
Oh red,
When they put me on the stand,
I will testify I loved you,
And I'm not ashamed to be your comrade.

Red, red, baby's a red,
She's blood red,
Baby's a red,
The feds said,
"Lock her in lead,
She's red," but I love her.

(Hammer and sickle on my mind)

Oh oh little red,
It's not like McCarthy said,
Though we differ on religion,
We both support the working man.
Oh red, if the bombs fall on our lands,
Then our politics won't matter,
Only that I loved you until death.

(Hammer and sickle)

Red, red, baby's a red,
She's blood red,
Baby's a red,
The feds said,
"Lock her in lead,
She's red," but I love her.

Oh, yea, baby's a red,
She's blood red,
Baby's a red,
The feds said,
"Lock her in lead,
She's red," but I love her.

I want to touch you, and I'm not afraid,
I want to touch you , and I'm not ashamed,
I want to tell you, that I'm not afraid,
They'll burn us at the stake!

I want to love you, and I'm not afraid,
I want to love you, and I'm not ashamed,
I want to love you, and I'm not afraid, oh baby.

Hammer and sickle on my mind.
Saint Petersburg in summer time.
Hammer and sickle on my mind.
Stars over Moscow shining bright.
Hammer and sickle on my mind.
The shores of Astrakhan are fine.
Hammer and sickle on my mind.

Red, red, baby's a red,
She's blood red,
Baby's a red,
The feds said,
"Lock her in lead,
She's red," but I love her.

    General CommentOh, I love this song! It's about an American who falls in love with a Commie! They used to call communists "Reds" back in the day.

    General CommentI had the feeling that this was about communists... kinda obvious with the whole "red" bit and the "hammer and sickle" parts. Also all the russian cities kinda gave that away. But this is kind of a random song. Is/was one of the band members actually in love with a commie or is this just random? Either way it's a good song.

    General CommentThe entire album that this song is on kind of has a WWII theme to it, so I think this was just kind of a fun song that they wrote that fit nicely into the album. And I guess to some extent it can make the point that love can overcome adversity, even love that may be viewed as 'forbidden' by society.

    General CommentWhen I first saw the title of this song I thought, "I wonder if it's about communists. . . nah, it can't be about that." Then I just cracked up when I realized that actually was what it is about. This song is great!

    General CommentIt occured to me that maybe it's a metaphor for someone in a relationship with a non-Christian, but eeeeh.
