The story of the government assault on Gibson Guitar Co.

I met up with a cowgirl a story she did tell
Of a villain who was powerful and strong
And when she strummed her guitar I thought I saw a tear
As she began to sing for me her song
A song about our government of criminals and czars
Taking with their guns our guitars

They busted into Gibson's home lookin' to shut 'em down
Their guns were cocked and ready for the kill
They fell upon the Gibsons and grabbed them by their necks
And shouted we will finish you, we will
Dreams of pretty girls came crashing down like falling stars
For the Government is stealing our guitars

She said they’ll have to fight us for what we know is right
This hope and change is changing all our plans
We're clinging to our bibles and we're clinging to our guns
Now listen boys this is how it stands
You can have our guitars only when you can
Pry them from our cold and dying hands

The raid they made on Gibson was a terrorizing act
And every cowgirl knows it isn't right
To bully any company who doesn't play their tune
Oh brother they have picked a bitter fight
They’ll make you pay if you wanna play
If the government says you could
Except that they have stolen all the wood

And as her story ended the cowgirl rode away
With all the pain and sorrows and the scars
These tyrants will have to face the ones they hurt the most
Pretty girls with guns and guitars
They never saw them rising up like shooting stars
Pretty girls with guns and guitars
Pretty girls with guns and guitars

(((((Drew)))))

This was so much fun to work on......  (and I learned how to edit and add video, with my still shots.... and adding little touches of effects, etc... well it's just a hoot!)

I hope we can do more, together!

Candi, it would be an honor, to do an interview with you.  Thanks!

BD and Lisa are the real dynamics of the song.... it was so inspiring and called my creativity out to play!

 

Alvaro, thanks.... and I understand, perfectly, as I'm a bit of a recluse, myself... LOL!

Hi Alvaro, Happy Thanksgiving!

I wrote this song.  BigDawg did this awesome arrangement and laid down the lead guitar, dobro and the other instruments.  Lisa, as you know, did all the vocals and I produced the video, with the help of some of our BigDawg friends, who sent pictures.  I'm so glad you like it!
