John Rich of Big N’ Rich Pens a McCain Theme Song

"Raisin' McCain"

With the Leftward bent that most of the music industry has, it’s difficult for a Republican candidate to find a good theme song for their campaign–remember what happened when Reagan tried to use Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA”? Meanwhile, it’s noticeably easier for Democrats to find one for their campaign, like Bill Clinton’s use of Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop (Thinking About Tomorrow)”.

But the good news for John McCain is that he might not have to look much longer for an official theme song for his campaign, thanks to John Rich, one half of the country duo “Big n’ Rich”.

Today, he unveiled a song he wrote specifically for John McCain called “Raisin’ McCain”.

Jump with me below the fold for the lyrics.

Here are the lyrics to the song, courtesy of Rich’s Website:

Well we’re all just raisin’ McCain / Everywhere across the USA / You can get on the train or get out of the way / We’re all just raisin’ McCain

And we’re all just raisin’ McCain / Everywhere across the USA / You can get on the train or get out of the way / We’re all just raisin’ McCain

Well he got shot down in a Vietnam town / Fighting for the red, white and blue / And they locked him up in the Hanoi Hilton / Thinking they could break him in two

He stayed strong, stayed extra long / ‘Til they let all the other boys out / Now we’ve got a real man with an American plan / We’re going to put him in the big White House

Well we’re all just raisin’ McCain / Everywhere across the USA / You can get on the train or get out of the way / We’re all just raisin’ McCain

Play that American guitar, son / And we’re all just raisin’ McCain / Everywhere across the USA / You can get on the train or get out of the way

We’re all just raisin’ McCain / I said we’re all just raisin’ McCain / Everywhere across the USA / You can get on the train or get out of the way / We’re all just raisin’ McCain

Well you can get on the train or get out of the way / We’re all just raisin’ McCain

For those of you interested in the song, you can download it for free from John Rich’s website as well.

So, what do you guys think of it? I think he did a good job writing and singing the song, especially when you consider the fact that most song’s written specifically to be theme songs don’t always turn out the best quality songs. It’s certainly far better than that song about Obama that Ludacris put out recently.
