Freedom Jubilee

I wrote this in Lake Tahoe over a decade ago.  Widespread Panic played at Montbleu for three nights over Fourth of July weekend.  Regardless, Lake Tahoe gets a little nuts around this time of year.  Have a safe and happy Fourth of July every one.

Stars and bars wave through the wind
A cooler bounces through the grass
Careful not to step on the glass
God bless this country
And those who made it true
Goddamn, the red, the white, and the blue
Tents on boats and a fresh pack of smokes
Sparklers, sprinklers, shovels and sand
Getting us geared up for the band
Light up the grill and gimme the whiskey
The keg is tapped and the water cold
Crack open your favorite flavor
Make sure to grab some party favors
Let the first swallow savor
For the taste of freedom
Has never felt sweeter
The jubilee will soon begin
Before we finish off the weekend
While we climb to the ascent
Right after the fireworks come to an end
Poetic Past v.17 / ca.2006

U.S. Blues / Grateful Dead

Thanks for stopping by.  See you soon.
