The Lyrics

Review the history and follow the link to the sheet music and original lyrics before singing this parody, the lament of a Down-East Republican voter.
Once I had a red state
Home of brave and true
Fearless as the tall pine
Genteel folk were few
Democrats had waited
They had paved the way
They'd elect blue governor
And two reps gained they
But in the high seats, we hailed
Senators Collins and Snowe
Faithfully fighting the blue

They sailed off to D.C.
On Potomac's shore
Conscious of grave danger
When the blues took o'er
Peacefully, they labored
In the chambers red
Duty had no friction bred
Then came a wealth-stealing clash
That rent those red solons twain
Down went the ramparts to stealth
Down went two members from Maine

Buried is our freedom land
Soon it shall be slave
With bells of liberty silenced in its soul
Now rise, you countrymen, rise
Let not this death be in vain
But strike down at costlier price
What chewed up two members from Maine
Stanza 3 refers to the socialistic programs hidden in the stimulus bill. I expect 1's for humor.
