stand by it today
John Lee Hooker for president

When I was 25 and so full of life
John Lee took me by the hand
In a GTO we did go into the fiery
out. 
What you want.
 
I said look man, I'm John Lee Hooker, I sing the blues. 
They said the President don't have time for the blues. 
I said look
"This song was written by John Lee Hooker
About his wife, her name is Maudie
Everytime he has an argument with her
He has to write a new verse
the hero from whom we got our name
We're not sure what he did but he's our hero just the same
Oh, we're the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
John Lee Hooker knows

Godhead
We got nothing
We got everything

I'm falling backwards in her mirrored room
In her mirrored room tonight
She looks so
Yes, that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker read

Then John
He got up from the table
Slowly, he walked outside

He was thinking
"This song was written by John Lee Hooker
About his wife, her name is Maudie
Everytime he has an argument with her
He has to write a new verse
Henry threw Stacker Lee in the river
Then he said I've got a say so to say
He broke out in a song that was wrote by Blind Leonard
He said Julie Anne
night long, rollin' all night long
One more drink and I'll be gone, oh, gone
Gone, yeah

Whoo, rollin', whoo
Alright, John Lee Hooker

Yeah, I got drunk
I gave my heart, gave my time 
And I got nothin
So it shouldn't be surprising 
This letter I'm writin 
That you there by yourself
Do you remember what
John Lee Hooker croons
Howlin' at the moon like a rabid
Like a rabid circus clown
You need to line 'em up and you need to
Knock 'em down
Mister
Buffett, Lyle Lovett and Bobby Gentry
Jerry Jeff, Bob Dylan, Donnie Fritts,
The Dead, The Doors, Patsy Cline, John Prine and more
I got Jackson Browne,
There's only two types of men
Pimps and John's
There's one type of bitch
That's a hoe

God damn hooker this is my world
God damn time to go
There's only two types of men
Pimps and John's
There's one type of bitch
That's a hoe

God damn hooker this is my world
God damn time to go
