Lee Hazlewood – Anthem lyrics

I never had a job on Wall Street.
Never was a man of means.
There's nothing social about social security.
Never found no pork in my beans.
I always did what my mama told me.
Do so good and pay the band.
I always did what my mama told me
But I never did vote republican.
I never did vote republican.

And the stripes keep on waving
And the stars always shine
And it smells just like freedom
In this land I call mine,
In this land I call mine.

I never never started nothing.
I never never never ran.
I never fought or hurt nobody,
Nobody I was bigger than.
I always did what my mama told me.
Do so good and pay that band.
I always did what my mama told me
But I never did vote republican.
I never did vote republican.

And the stripes keep on waving
And the stars always shine
And it smells just like freedom
In this land I call mine,
In this land I call mine.
