The Boss Headlines Official Obama Campaign Songlist (VIDEO)

Author: February 10, 2012 7:45 pm

Is it still a Great American Anthem when an artist has made a career of hitting that particular note? The Obama campaign thinks so. Today, the campaign released its song playlist and perhaps not surprisingly, taking the top spot (in my opinion), is Bruce Springsteen’s, “We Take Care of Our Own.”

Video here:

If the song isn’t an American anthem, it’s certainly a Democratic anthem. The video is dark and like many Springsteen songs, it tells the tale of a blue collar life. It tells the story of people who have fallen through the cracks and of a country that that has turned its back on people who are hardworking but needy.

I’ve been knockin’ on the door that holds the throne
I’ve been lookin’ for the map that leads me home
I’ve been stumblin’ on good hearts turned to stone
The road of good intentions has gone dry as bone
We take care of our own
We take care of our own
Wherever this flag’s flown
We take care of our own

From Chicago to New Orleans
From the muscle to the bone
From the shotgun shack to the Superdome
We yelled “help” but the cavalry stayed home
There ain’t no-one hearing the bugle blown
We take care of our own
We take care of our own
Wherever this flag’s flown
We take care of our own

Where the eyes, the eyes with the will to see
Where the hearts, that run over with mercy
Where’s the love that has not forsaken me
Where’s the work that set my hands, my soul free
Where’s the spirit that’ll reign, reign over me
Where’s the promise, from sea to shining sea
Where’s the promise, from sea to shining sea
Wherever this flag is flown
Wherever this flag is flown
Wherever this flag is flown

We take care of our own
We take care of our own
Wherever this flag’s flown
We take care of our own
We take care of our own
We take care of our own
Wherever this flag’s flown
We take care of our own

It’s time for our heartless ways to end. It’s time to stop letting others suffer. Taking care of our own isn’t (or at least shouldn’t be) partisan. It’s simply American. We take care of our own.
