It was back when the country was strong
Back before Elvis
Before the Vietnam war came along

Before The Beatles and 'Yesterday'
When a man could still work, still would
The best of the free life behind us now
And are the good times really over for good?

Are we rolling down hill
Like a snowball headed for Hell?
With no kind of chance
For the Flag or the Liberty Bell

The funny thing about that is cars will easily last 10 years or more these days. Even fords and chevys.

True, but just the same.

Wish a Ford and a Chevy
Could still last ten years, like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us now?
Are the good times really over for good?

I've been listening to Merle Haggard all day. This just completes it.

I don't care what nonsense of a song you are quoting, but fiat currencies are the only way to go. Educate yourself.

I wish Coke was still Cola
And a joint was a bad place to be
It was back before Nixon lied to us all on TV

Before microwave ovens
When a girl could still cook and still would
The best of the free life behind us now
Are the good times really over for good?

Are we rolling down hill
Like a snowball headed for Hell?
With no kind of chance
For the Flag or the Liberty Bell

Wish a Ford and a Chevy

Stop rolling down hill
Like a snowball headed for Hell
Stand up for the Flag
And let's all ring the Liberty Bell

Let's make a Ford and a Chevy
Still last ten years like they should
The best of the free life is still yet to come
The good times ain't over for good

When speaking or singing about politics, your standard artist is going to pick sides, regardless of the singer's mostly peaceful intentions. In 2008, Haggard famously supported Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's failed run for the White House with the song "Hillary." This time around, however, Haggard is singing a different tune by not singing one at all.

"I've got to be honest," he says. "I met President Obama and he was a nice fellow, but I'm not going to vote for him, and I'm not going to vote for Romney. So, that leaves me without many options. I don't see much that I like in either of them. It's a tough world and I don't think either of them is capable of representing this country right now."

Thank goodness...I can accept most of that (except the initial support for the cunt).
