I've always wanted to make my own music videos, and there's no time like the present! More videos on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/@peacedozer/videos
An anonymous 4chan user posted these lyrics the day after that "fiery but mostly peaceful" protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin in August 2020. This video is dedicated to the memory of Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber, and Gaige Grosskreutz, who got the ol' spicy bicep.
Musical shitposting always gets me hyped, so this ended up being way faster than I intended. I tuned the strings up one whole step and put the capo on the second fret instead of standard tuning with the capo on the fourth fret. I actually tried tuning the strings up two whole steps during an earlier recording session, but it didn't end well. Lyrics and chords are below.
Guitar: Taylor 814ce Audio recorder: Zoom H6 Vocals microphone: SM7B Guitar microphone: SM81
Lyrics and chords:
(capo on the 4th fret)
Am E Am C Am in the town of old Kenosha marched some troubled rogues one day C Am held hammers high above their heads, and looking for a fray F C no one dared to ask their business, no one dared to make a din Am save for one young man among them with an AR on a sling F C AR on a sling C Am in this town there were some outlaws bound to teachings of the red C Am many soyboys were among them as were trannies overfed F C they were vicious, prone to violence, burning gas stations and more, Am and their leader rode a skateboard rolling swiftly on the floor F C swiftly on the floor C Am now young man started talkin', made it plain to folks around C Am he was there to stop the mob from burnin' businesses to ground F C didn't look like much the tough guy 'cept for one important thing, Am and that thing of course an AR riding tautly on a sling F C tautly on a sling C Am now the night was passing quickly as the mob moved wielding flame C Am and the youth called out to halt them when they spotted him as game F C he was running down the pavement when a lout caused him to trip Am and tempted the soy leader with with the skateboard on his hip F C skateboard on his hip C Am it was over in a moment as the folks had gathered round C Am the skater sought the rifle as the youth lay on the ground F C oh he might have went on living but forgot one major thing Am and he fell down shot dead by the kid with the AR on a sling F C AR on a sling F C AR AR C Am he fell down shot dead by the kid with the AR on a sling F C AR on a sling
