about

Post Election Blues
©Scott Leslie 2017

We've just experienced the most divisive presidential election in modern history. And many of us are burned out, exhausted and worried about our future. The divisiveness is epic. If we don't figure out a way to find those issues that we can agree on rather than what pulls us apart, we're in big trouble.

lyrics

Post Election Blues

Our country is divided
That is plain to see
Where do we go from here?
What can we believe?
It’s a post truth era
And we have to do more
Left and right are fighting
We don’t want civil war

I can’t take the fighting, the war in the street
If our lives don’t matter, our nation is beat
If we can’t resolve our differences, what will we do?
No more, no more, I’ve got the post election blues

Black and white dead on
Also brown and yellow
Fear causes our hate
Violence is never mellow
Why are facts so scary?
To those who don’t believe
Ignorance is never bliss
The truth is not relieved

I can’t take the fighting, the war in the street
If our lives don’t matter, our nation is beat
If we can’t resolve our differences, what will we do?
No more, no more, I’ve got the post election blues

We have to find a peace
A way to work together
We can’t be obstructionist
We cannot fight our brother
If we lose our way
We’ll lose our country too
The world will lose faith
And we’ll be forever blue

I can’t take the fighting, the war in the street
If our lives don’t matter, our nation is beat
If we can’t resolve our differences, what will we do?
No more, no more, I’ve got the post election blues

about

Scott Leslie Vero Beach, Florida

I’m a self-taught guitarist/songwriter and my influences are from the amazing music of the 60’s and 70's. In the late 60’s/early 70’s I had the good fortune to be a part-time roadie working the DC area, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York for a number of bands. They included; The Jeff Beck Group, Ten Years After, The Doors, The Who, ELP and many others. So I had some interesting influences. ... more
