Impeachment Blues (A What We Believe Chorus)

I wanna tell you ’bout a woman

Sweet Anerica was her name

And man she was so beautiful

It electrified her fame

But Lord that sweet America

As time and years went by

My baby grew so bloated

And we never wondered why.

I got the impeachment blues

I’m sure that you do too

Impeachment blues

I wonder if we’re through

Way back in the dawn of her founding

Grown men would cry her name

They called for sweet America

For liberation, freedom, more of the same.

Back then she was so hopeful

Her lovers’ joyous groan

My baby sweet America

You once sat upon a throne.

But time, it does its number

With age you start to crack

And everything the founders hoped

It ain’t never comin’ back.

I got the impeachment blues

I’m sure that you do too

Impeachment blues

I wonder if we’re through.

Now most folk loved George Washington

Some deified his name

And those who love our Donald Trump

Think Washinton loses the game.

The man himself he boasts it

Claims he’s the best there ever was

Yet Washington loved his country

While today he seeks applause.

Some people think Trump’s different

Believe him better than the rest

And the name of Thomas Jefferson

Is now part of our modern mess.

Today it’s all about lyin’

‘Bout winnin’ some cruel game

And “by any means necessary”

It’s meanin’ ain’t the same.

Today’s cynicism and doubt

Our culture of mistrust

Those weird and challenging conspiracies

Give meaning to our dust.

Where once we loved our nation

And our people were the best

Today we hate each other

And there’s no such thing as rest.

And down we go with sweet America

Corrupt hearings and false trials can never stop a crook

Cause President Trump done shamed us

Former allies can’t even look

And America

Sweet America

She ain’t, she just ain’t

what she was

Ain’t what she was

I got the impeachment blues

I’m sure that you do too.

Impeachment blues

And I wonder–oh how I wonder!

I wonder if we all gonna pull through.
