Smear Campaign Lyrics by Rory Gallagher

 

Smear Campaign by Rory Gallagher


The dirty tricks department is working overtime
Trying to stop the candidate from getting this time
The wheels are now in motion all the traps are set
Under this commotion will he walk into this mess
The state's intoxicated they're at the staarting gate
He may never make it to the planned TV debate
He can't fight off the big bucks of the old brigade
He's gotta watch his step in this smear campaign
They called a snap election in the summer heat
This town is reeling backwards
Like a drunk man on the streets
Feed those lies
Bend those minds at any price
Foul or air
As long as he's not there
Election time
Don't believe the papers it's not anybody's race
He's not a rank beginner it's not a children's game
He may get the nomination if he breaks through the chain
Or they'll shoot him down on Main street in this smear campaign
Just watch the party faithful fuel the dream machine
They've fudged up all the issues eat that scandal sheet
The dirty tricks department is nearly half insane
Trying to stop the candidate with a smear camaign
