The Lyrics

Ride through Virginia upon my horse.
To join George Washington, of course.
The taxes, the Brits upon us piled.
Their redcoat soldiers running wild.
To revolution we must go.
And I'm the Colonel called James Monroe.

Ride through Virginia upon my horse
to help America set its course.
I ran to be elected Senator.
'Cause practicing law is such bore.
'Til the President said I must go.
Now I'm the Ambassador James Monroe.

(guitar break)

I was Ambassador James Monroe.
But Adams don't want me there no mo'.
But Jefferson, he saw some gold.
And Madison gave me real good role.
Can you imagine me there at State?
My chance for the Presidency great!

Walking around the big White House!
Still feud with Henry Clay that louse!
These sectional rivalries are a sin!
And Spain and France, check my Doctrine!
Into the history books I go
as the President they call James Monroe!

(guitar close)

Monroe was six feet even, Alvin. You're thinking of Madison (five-four, the shortest of them all).

This parody is good enough to inspire a doctrine!
