about

Inspiration? John F. Kennedy book, Profiles in Courage. War hero and Texas governor, Sam Houston refused to support secession from the Union and was subsequently removed from office. Reminder for us all to do what we know t is right despite pressure to do otherwise.

lyrics

The very first rays of dawn
Were beginning to leak
Across the White House lawn
Where the president speaks
We stayed up all night long

He’s calling all his friends
To lay their differences down
Come forward just like men
And listen to the sound
Of a broken heart
The sound of a broken heart

You can see him in his coonskin cap
And his alligator shoes
A Southern Democrat
But he followed his own rules
Because he wanted to live like that

Texas is the only land
He could ever call his own
He took a rebel stand
But he had to stand alone
He did his part, to the sound of a broken heart

Ooh Ooh Ooh love
Ooh Ooh Ooh love

I’ve been sitting on my hands
And drinking from the still
Time I took a little chance
On my Jacinto Hill
I’ll do my part
To the sound of a broken heart

Chrous
