Ode to New Country

They called it hot country
when country got screwed
I searched high and low
but the radio spewed
The same lame sequences
all frequencies blew
What's a true country fan
supposed to do?

Just turn off the radio
grab your guitar
you have what it takes
to not be a star
They build those celebrities
just like a car
and driven some garbage
too far

They're selling insurance
they're sellin' their soap
pushing their products
like Ronnie with dope
and pushing my buttons
'til I cannot cope
How does a true country fan
have any hope

Turn off the radio...

Who likes this crap?
Doesn't everyone hate it?
Why would they write it
and then syndicate it?
Have all the hillbillies
been gagged and sedated?
New country is
