Hi.
This is my new country song i wrote this morning.
I thought i'd share it with ATS since you guys are my inspiration here.
Of course we all know a country protest song is dead in the water so
i guess this is as far as it will go lol.
Hope you enjoy.

Bad Excuse by Barry Piercy April30 20008.

Nobody said it was a bad excuse.
A poor misuse of your intelligence and mine.
Someone should say it is a sad excuse.
A bad misuse of your abillities and time.

We always look to our friends.
To smooth the edge of life's rough ends.
But little did we know , that little did they know.
I can't say the answers there, come on honey lets be fair.
But do they really care if our love grows.

Nobody said it was a bad excuse.
A poor misuse of your intelligence and mine.
Someone should say it is a sad excuse.
A bad misuse of your abillities and time.

I always tried to keep a job.
But half the time i feel i'm robbed.
As more goes out, than i bring in.
Wage's never seem to rise.
As price's reach unto the sky.
And job's disapear into thin air.

Nobody said it was a bad excuse.
A poor misuse, of my intelligence and time.
Someone should say it is a sad excuse.
A bad misuse of my abillities and mind.

Our childern fighting overseas.
As the country cries and bleeds.
How did we get from here, all the way to there.
They take away the nation's pride.
And throw sand back in our eye's.
At what point do we say enough's enough.

Most people say it was a bad excuse.
A poor misuse of our abillities and time.
Someone should say it was a sad excuse.
A crooked use of our nation's pride.

Oh... oh... our nation's pride....ide
Can't you hear the cries.....ies.
Someone should say.
Someone should say....ay
Enough's enough.

Sorry for the spelling and grammer.
Please don't be too critical.
After all it's part of my soul here
