In the midst of "Goodpeople" at Widespread Panic's opening show of their 2008 Fall Tour this past Friday, October 10th in Austin, TX at The Backyard.
Listen to the show here:
John "JoJo" Hermann's lyrics transcribed:
"To all my friends, slash rednecks, I dedicate this song to you, I can't help but feel, This time it's really real, So I just want you all to know
I still love this country, God help us all, in the USA Ya Gotta love this place we call our home I still love living in the USA
If you still believe your politicians, I've got a bridge for sale in Brooklyn No money down, and an interest only loanand if you act right now, You'll get a supply of free gasoline for your automobile
Cause I still love this country Gob bless us all, in the USA Ya Gotta love this place we call our home, I still love living in the USA
To all my friends, slash evengelicals, OK, fine, Christ is real, And I cant help but feel, That if Jesus Christ were here, He'd Say, "What the hell, in my name, Are you doing to my Daddy's world?? Well, ya got it all wrong."
And I still love this country God help us all in the USA Ya Gotta love this this place we call our home I still love living in the USA I still love living in the USA I still love living in the USA I still love living in the USA Well, I feel so much better, To utter these letters
Barack Obama please help us now... In the USA"
JoJo Hermann and the Mardi Gras Band have performed this song as well, (titled, "God Bless the USA" on the recording) at their show on September 27, 2008 during their performance at The Windjammer on the Isle of Palms, SC, northeast of Charleston, SC.
