"Going Down to Sing in Texas"

I’m going down to sing in Texas
Where anybody can carry a gun
But we will all be so much safer there
The biggest lie under the sun
Go ahead and shoot me if it floats your little boat
But I’ll live by my conscience even if that’s all she wrote
I’m going down to sing in Texas
Where anybody can carry a gun

It’s been way too long comin’
But I want to thank the chicks
They found out what it’s like to be a woman
And defy the establishment
Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson any gun in a cowboy hat
Would have walked away unscathed
Takin’ a stand like that
Well it’s been way too long coming
But I want to thank the chicks

I’m so glad Jesus drove those moneychangers out of the church
He did not mince his words for fear that their feelings might get hurt
He spoke truth to power
He stood up for the poor
The church today wouldn’t even let him through the door
I’m so glad Jesus drove those moneychangers out of the church
