Subject: Chords Add: John Birch Society
From: chico
Date: 03 Nov 05 - 04:45 AM


          C                           F                C
Oh we're meeting at the courthouse at eight o'clock tonight
    F       C       F       C         G                7
You just come in the door and take the first turn to the right
    Am             (C)             Am            C
Be careful when you get there, we'd hate to be bereft
          F                C            G7          C
But we're taking down the names of everybody turning left

       F#° G°   G            7          C               7
'Cause we're the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
G                  7             C
Here to save this country from a communistic plot
7         G            7      E7                Am
We're the John Birch Society, help us swell the ranks
    F                C                G7                C
To get this movement started, we need lots of tools and cranks

Now there's no one that's certain that the Kremlin doesn't touch
We think that Westbrook Pegler doth protest a bit too much
We only hail the hero from whom we got our name
We're not sure what he did, but he's our hero all the same

Join the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
Socialism is the ism dismalist of all
Join the John Birch Society, there's so much to do
Have you heard they're serving vodka at the W.C.T.U.

Well you've heard about the agents that we've already named
Well M.C.A. has agents that are flatly unashamed
We're after Rosie Clooney, we've gotten Pinky Lee
And the day we get Red Skelton won't that be a victory

For we're the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
Norman Vincent Peale may think he's kidding us along
But the John Birch Society knows he spilled the beans
He keeps on preaching brotherhood, but we know what he means

We'll teach you how to spot 'em in the city or the sticks
'Cause even Jasper Junction is just full of Bolsheviks
The CIA's subversive and so's the FCC
There's no one left but thee and we, and we're not sure of thee

Oh we're the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
Here to save our country from a Communistic plot
Join the John Birch Society, holding off the Reds
We'll use our hands and hearts, and if we must, we'll use our heads

BRIDGE: (O beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain)

"Friends, do you want Justice Warren to be your Commissar?
Do you want Mrs. Khrushchev in there with the DAR?
You cannot trust your neighbors, or even next-of-kin
If mommy is a Commie then you gotta turn her in"

To the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
Fighting for the right to fight the right fight for the right
Join the John Birch Society, as we're marching on
We'll all be glad to see you when we're meeting in the John
In the John, In the John Birch Society

[The songbook states that some Bircher's used the song themselves, and saw it in a positive light. WCTU, Woman's Christian Temperance Union. MCA hollywood union connected with communism.]

Actually, MCA stands for MUSIC CORPORATION of AMERICA, one of the biggest conglomerates controlling the biz.

Credit should also go to Michael Brown for writing our first "satire" "Lizzie Borden" and for the lyrics to "The George Bush Society" currently on You Tube. He's been one of the best writers of this materiel since "New Faces Of 1952". Thanks, Michael.
