Whistleblower Blues

Getting dragged through the mud

For speaking the truth

And your kids don’t know why

Wake in a cold sweat

Rocks through your windows

And all these death threats

Makes you all want to hide

But your name is a good name

No matter what they do

And you’re never alone when your singing

The Whistleblower Blues

Whistleblower Blues

They’re talking about you

All day on Fox News

They’re saying you’re telling lies

But there wasn’t a choice

No one else was speaking

So you raised up your voice

And now you can’t step outside

Your name is a good name

That can’t take that away

The world needs to hear what you have to say

Whistleblower Blues

Getting dragged through the mud

For speaking the truth

But your never alone when your singing

But you’re never alone when your singing

The Whistleblower Blues

Ouch! I'm in tremendous pain

And this pain it has a name

My doctor said it’s called bone spurs

And it really really really really hurts

So I can’t go to war, no not me

I need to stay at home and do the bone spurs boogie

Bone Bone Bone Spurs Boogie

Bone Bone Bone Spurs Boogie

Bone Bone Bone Spurs Boogie

Please, daddy please send somebody some money

I need to stay at home and bone spurs boogie

I feel bad that I can't do more

But I can hardly walk around the golf course

I’m so sorry that I feel this way

I swear to god that I’ve got x-rays

But can’t a scratch on my beautiful body

I gotta skip the war and do the bone spurs boogie

Bone Bone Bone Spurs Boogie

Bone Bone Bone Spurs Boogie

Bone Bone Bone Spurs Boogie

Please, daddy please keep me out of the Army

I need to stay at home and bone spurs boogie

Send the poor blacks

And the hicks from the farm

Send the dumb white trash

Send them all into harm

The sons of cops and the sons of truckers

I can’t be around all those losers and suckers

Please daddy please you gotta believe

Daddy just don’t make me leave

Bone Bone Bone Spurs Boogie

Bone Bone Bone Spurs Boogie

Bone Bone Bone Spurs Boogie

Please, daddy please do this for me

I need to stay at home and bone spurs boogie

There are different kinds of woke up

Different kinds of sleep

There’s different kinds of flat

And different kinds of steep

There are different kinds of going and sometimes it’s not for long

But the kind of gone that you are man is the kind where you stay gone

There are different kinds of high

Different kinds of low

Different kinds of silence

Different kinds of slow

There are different kinds of going and sometimes you sing a brand new song

But the kind of gone that you are man is the kind where you stay gone

Some folks break a leg

And then heal and mend

But some bones don’t set

They never walk right again

They just fall off the edge of the map

They just walk and never walk back

There are different kinds of safe

Different kinds of fixed

Different kinds of crooked

Different kinds of sick

There are different kinds of going

Sometimes a man admits he wrong

But the kind of gone that you are man is the kind where you stay gone
