I wrote this song the week after the 2004 Presidential Election. I was in a state of semi-shock and near-depression as my daughter's birth was impending and I was depressed to think of her born into the world during a Bush Presidency.
Get Out and Vote Fuckers!
To coincide with Election Day, Patterson Hood of the Drive By Truckers has offered up a free download of the new song "Uncle Phil and Aunty Phyllis in the Month After the Election".
You can download the song here.
Here's a personal note from Patterson about the song and his thoughts on election day:
It was recorded live in the studio at Chase Park Transduction with me on the microphone, David Hood (my Dad) on the bass guitar, Johnny Neff playing some sleazy sounding electric guitar, Brad Morgan playing the drums, and David Barbe on the B3. It was late at night and everyone's spirits were high.
I am throwing this out as my election week gift to you.
Please get out and vote.
I will be voting for Obama because I think he has the guts, vision judgment and smarts to guide us through these troubled times and help America regain her prominence in the 21st century.
It's time for a change and not four more years of bullshit.
Jr. has wrapped the Camaro around too many telephone poles and it's time to take his keys away.
LONG LIVE AMERICAN DEMOCRACY
