    If you still haven't, listen to Toby Keith / Willie Nelson - I think the name is "'Beer for my horses". I'm not a country fan, but it's a kickass song!

    Lyrics... 'Nuff Said.

    Good song, NT!

    Here's the lyrics for the song. I find it interesting that they had the same attitude back then as some do now (seeking justice). I like to listen to this and think of what they would have said about the US holding those responsible for terrorism today.
    ***********************************************


    Well a man come on 6 o'clock news
    Said somebody been shot
    Somebody's been abused
    somebody blew up a building
    somebody stole a car
    somebody got away
    somebody didn't get too far
    Yeah, they didn't get too far

    Grand pappy told my pappy back in my day
    Son a man had to answer for the wicked that he'd done
    Take all the rope in Texas
    Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
    Hang them high in the street
    For all the people to see

    That
    Justice is the one thing you should always find
    You got to saddle up your boys
    You got to draw a hard line
    When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune
    And we'll all meet back at the local saloon
    And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing
    whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

    We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds
    too much corruption and crime in the streets
    It's time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground
    Send 'em all to their maker and he'll settle 'em down
    You can bet he'll set 'em down

    Cause
    Justice is the one thing you should always find
    You got to saddle up your boys
    You got to draw a hard line
    When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune
    And we'll all meet back at the local saloon
    And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing
    whiskey for my men, beer for my horses
    whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

    He knew
    Justice is the one thing you should always find
    You got to saddle up your boys,
    You got to draw a hard line
    When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune
    And we'll all meet back at the local saloon
    And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces
    Singin' whiskey for my men, beer for my horses
    Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

    Yeah, this song was released after the Dixie Chicks spouted off over in Britain... someone asked Toby Keith what he thought of the Dixie Chicks, he said :

    "I'd like to beat them with my guitar"

    Hellll yeah! lmao
