Gary Green, Vol. 3: Still at Large

Parole e musica di Gary M. Green, personaggio che con disinvoltura da folksinger protestario – quale era a cavallo tra 70 e 80, con tre dischi all'attivo per la Folkways Records - è divenuto poi un brillante uomo d'affari e uno dei massimi dirigenti della Trump Organization, specializzato in marketing e casinò. Praticamente è diventato lo squalo repubblicano che lui stesso parodiava in questa canzone. Come si cambia per un po' di soldi! E pensare che negli anni 70 Green girava con una chitarra alla Woody Guthrie, con su scritto “These six strings neutralize the tools of oppression”...
Jesus Christ was a republican and if you're not you can go to hell
But you can redeem your soul with my TV preacher; he's got little flag-pins for sale
I don't give a damn about Mexicans and I never did care for Jews
I'm a member of the Moral Majority and the army is going to enforce my views.

I've got no use for the food-stamp books; to feed a bunch of loafers is all
And we ought to make them labor organizers burn down those union halls
Now I pay a little girl to show me a good time and I see no reason stop
At least she is not one of them big-mouth broads that thinks she belongs on top.

Jesus Christ was a republican and if you're not you can go to hell
But you can redeem your soul with my TV preacher; he's got little flag-pins for sale
I don't give a damn about Mexicans and I never did care f or Jews
I'm a member of the Moral Majority and the army is going to enforce my views.

Being one of God's main children, I love every inferior race
I've got nothing against hiring a colored boy if he remembers to keep in his place
And I don't need no woman of mine telling me her body is hers to control
I've got enough problems with radio stations playing that godless rock and roll.

Jesus Christ was a republican and if you're not you can go to hell
But you can redeem your soul with my TV preacher; he's got little flag-pins for sale
I don't give a damn about Mexicans and I never did care f or Jews
I'm a member of the Moral Majority and the army is going to enforce my views.

Well one day my savior's going to return in his alligator shirt and Mercedes limousine
It's going to be a day of reckoning like those pinko-liberals have never seen
But until the Dow Jones climbs high on that final judgement day
It's up to me and Jerry and a few white buddies to drive the sinners away.

Caro Bernart, e noi rispondiamo con semplicità:



La canzone scritta da Peio Serbielle e adattata da Gilles Servat, è cantata in francese, bretone e basco assieme ai ragazzi del Collège Diwan di Vannes e dell'Ikastola Zurriola di Saint-Sébastien e si trova nel CD "Zara" ("Tu sei")del 2014.
