White House Blues

Subject: Cover: White House Blues.



"White House Blues" is a song by Atlanta singer/songwriter Caroline

Aiken. The girls have been doing it now and then since 1987. When

they first started doing the song, they did it as Caroline wrote it,

but, after a while, they re-wrote the third verse to make it more

topical. I've heard it at least twice in the past two years, but I

don't remember whether they used Caroline's third verse, or the one

they reworked in 1988, or if they wrote a whole new third verse, as

the 1988 one is kinda dated. Anyway...



White House Blues.



I wrote a letter to my senator

It came back "The Address Unknown"

Put a call in to the President

He wouldn't come to the phone

Now, how in the hell can a person

Feel safe and secure at home

When all the decisions are being made

By big boys getting stoned?



-Chorus-

Now, I've been listening and watching

It seems like something's going to give, yeah

I can't seem to find a groove

Something's gone wrong around here.



I took a train to the White House

Wrote this song on the way

Knocked at the Oval Office

I was sure what I had to say

They looked at me kinda funny

Asked me what group I was with

I said I've come on my own

To represent the group that don't take no shit



-Chorus-



(Caroline's 3rd verse)

Hey, Ronnie's taking time

We know that things ain't fine

Been sweating in your seat

*From the weapons scandal heat

You know that I love my country

But how can we get ahead?

Take your thumb out of my pie

Stick it somewhere else instead



(The girls' 3rd verse, c.1988)

Now, Jimmy Swaggart is taking time

We know that things ain't fine

Been sweating in your seat

*From the sex scandal heat

Think of that woman down in New Orleans

And what was in your head

Did you think you could save her soul

By getting into her bed?



-chorus x2
