Wallace

This song is by Drive-By Truckers and appears on the album Southern Rock Opera (2001).

Throw another log on the fire, boys, George Wallace is comin' to stay
When he met St. Peter at the pearly gates, I'd like to think that a black man stood in his way
I know "All should be forgiven", but he did what he done so well
So throw another log on the fire boys, George Wallace is a-coming
George Wallace is coming

Now, he said he was the best friend that a black man from Alabama ever had
And I have to admit, compared to Fob James, George Wallace don't seem that bad
And if it's true that he wasn't a racist and he just did all them things for the votes
I guess hell's just the place for "kiss ass politicians" who pander to assholes

So throw another log on the fire, boys, George Wallace is coming to stay
I know, in the end, he got the black people's votes, but I bet they'd still vote him that way
And hell's just a little bit hotter 'cause he played his hand so well
Well he had what it took to take it so far, now the devil's got a Wallace sticker
Now the devil's got a Wallace sticker
Now the devil's got a Wallace sticker on the back of his Cadillac

Oh, Alabama
Oh, Alabama
Oh, Alabama
Oh
