Lyrics

              GRIDLOCK CANDY MOUNTAIN 

               by Neal Phillips & Greg Trafidlo 

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, there is no welfare state
Everything is like it was in 1958
The gals all know their places, we don’t have any gays
Just Mister Ed and Wonder Bread, Mom & Dad in separate beds
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, all the states are red
O’Reilly is the president, Obamacare is dead
You don’t pay any taxes, there is no IRS
You’ll feel no pains on your capital gains to subsidize those Amtrak trains
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, corporations are your friends
Don’t need regulations ‘cause we just use common sense
In the land of job creators, you’ll pay no union dues
There’s a fragrant breeze by the smokestack trees, and gas is free for SUVs
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

MODULATE (whole step up)

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, all the news is Fox
And little streams of fairness come a’ tricklin’ down the rocks
Creation is a science, and climate change a hoax
We roll our eyes at compromise, cut those liberals down to size
With gridlock and accountants

The answer my friend, don’t trust the government…

So grab your guns, we’ll have some fun
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
