lyrics

Well it was rising from the east like some long forgotten sun

them reds are coming back again, time to get your gun

and he rode right off the screen into this quiet old ghost town

the sun was high, his shadow gone, he drew up both pistols



(Chorus) Ronald Reagan's dead, yea RRID

Take the flags down, gonna burn them high above our head

RRID, he was a national hero, fought the commies and protected corporate interests, yea

What about the Sandinistas, what about the Contra Wars? What about the striking workers, what about the nation's poor? No day of mourning for the victims of his wars



If he's a cowboy, then I'm a bandit, and we're coming down from these hills

we're gonna crack open a bank and drink in the memory

He was the last fucking fascist cowboy until Alzheimer’s ate his brain

I hope the next president goes out like that ‘cause they're all really fucking insane



(Repeat Chorus)
