Put Your Shoulder to the Plow ©2007 Doug Spears Red states think they’re righteous, Blue states think they’re smart, Both sides got too much mouth and damned too little heart, They should be ashamed, Bitch and moan and point and blame, Now if you don’t like the crops they’re plantin’ round here boy, Put your shoulder to the plow. Some say that the man is evil, Some say that he’s a saint, They way they’re spinnin’ it we’ll never know what he is and what he ain’t, Just rant and rave, Anger feeding hate cradle to the grave, Now if you don’t like the crops they’re plantin’ round here boy, Put your shoulder to the plow. You know when truth ain’t truth and facts ain’t facts it’s so hard to decide, You’re gonna have to figure out for yourself which horse you’re gonna ride. Everybody’s talkin’ ‘bout freedom, And preachin’ ‘bout people’s rights, But nobody’s talkin’ ‘bout what it costs, you know freedom’s got a price, Freedom just ain’t free, And the ones that are gonna pay are you and me, Now if you don’t like the crops they’re plantin’ round here boy, Put your shoulder to the plow. You know when truth ain’t truth and facts ain’t facts it’s so hard to decide, You’re gonna have to figure out for yourself which horse you’re gonna ride. Christian soldiers march for Jesus, ‘Cause they say he’s the only way, While the Muslims are calling for a holy war and they say there’ll be hell to pay, And people gonna die, In the name of heaven can you tell me why, Now if you don’t like the crops they’re plantin’ round here boy, Put your shoulder to the plow.
