A protest song in the lineage of Woody Guthrie. I found out about this song here (worth the read):

Question: Who thinks big money in politics is good for this country?
Answer: Big Money.

I wrote this song with Uncle Dave Macon and Woody Guthrie in mind. Sharon helped the grandkids make some drawings and shot it on her cellphone. It features Clay Cooper, Olivia Good, Olive Cooper and Morgan Munzing.

A studio version of this song is available for digital download from the usual suspects, i.e. CD Baby, iTunes, etc… ( It has a full band, good harmony and only costs 99 cents. Get it now and tell your friends!

You can find the lyrics on our website ( If you know how, learn this song and sing it whenever you can between now and election day.

    This song is so beautiful and love the songs that singers made in the same tone. I think you love your home more and that is the reason you have the statement that home is not for sale. people find it hard to get the best home when they are in need of having a good home Your post is so great and loving.
