March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one
March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one

Brenda's packing heat 'cause she don't like Mondays
Underpaid teacher policing the hallways
Print yourself a weapon and take it to the gun range
(Ah, cut the shit)
(You ain't goin' to the gun range)

Standing with Emma and our sons and daughters
Watchin' our youth have to solve our problems
I'll follow them so who's comin' with me
(Half of you love me)
(Half already hate me)

March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one
March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one

Tell the ol' boys in the white bread lobby
What they can and can't do with their bodies
Temperatures are rising, cities are sinkin'
(Ah, cut the shit)
(You know your city is sinkin')
Lies are truth and truth is fiction
Everybody's talkin'
Who's gonna listen?
What the hell happened in Helsinki?

March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one
March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one

This has a swear word, so this gets a 1. And why has this been played so much? PLEASE STOP PLAYING THIS (or at least play a clean version)

I bet 9 out of 10 fear-filled 'Murcan gun owners couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with any of the bullets in the extended magazines of their combat weapons. 
 I'll take that bet. Set it up.

 
It would take 10 to prove it.

Try to get it straight. Disagreeing with the President's politics is not equivalent to being a strong supporter of political correctness.
 
If anything Political correctness would be badgering, threatening, and screaming at folks for kneeling during the National Anthem to protest injustice.  But, actually PC is not even a thing.  It's just a boogey man for small minds.

Saw them perform this song on Steven Colbert a couple weeks ago. Liked it right away. Much different than I expected from them.Rated seven maybe more later. Thanks B and R.

Sounds like a challenge of sorts, to say the least.  OK, I'll play.  I like a lot of their music, but I don't like this song.  And I don't agree with their politics. By your definition does that make me a hater?
Politics should always remain within politics and never outside.

Political correctness is not a thing.  It's a made up term used for dividing people.  Based on the definition of the words, if anything, political correctness is forcing people to stand for the national anthem.  The PC police, were they to exist, would be the conservatives.
 
I agree. Political correctness is generally a phrase used to defend oneself against the politeness, respect, openness and kindness of others (or to resist change). I think some people find it hard to believe that people would say "politically correct" things from a place of genuineness.

So.... Nobody has anything to say about the album cover? LOL!!!

P.S. Diggin the tune!!
Not a huge Chicks fan, but this is one of the best protest songs I've heard in a while.  I dig their politics and courage.

Mostly agree... Raise you 1.

8 on 1st listen!
Amazing to hear such a new release here on RP.
Like this, I do.
I really like the Dixie Chicks... not sure about going to the Chicks... I understand their reason though.  Watched them play at a small venue in College Station, TX once... Fantastic show

Love them for their politics, hate them for their music.  I do appreciate them singing this message in a format that some country fans might listen to though.

I mean it's OK, but seven plays in the last 30 days? 
 

That works out to roughly once every four days - hardly seems bothersome, especially since RP runs 24/7 and the chance of hearing it every time it's played is remote.
I'm digging this song and The Chicks. ¬°Bravas! Good to hear it here on RP. :)

 I like The Chicks for their Music. I also get a kick out of how they have their own opinions and a willingness to share them.

Music and musicians have frequently been the voice of opposition to conformity and control. Yay music and musicians!

Their assessment of the Iraq "war" was correct.  200,000 civilians dead by the end.  Love the Chicks:  great song!

Presumably PC means Protesting  Corruption in this case. That ain't BS.
Gets my heart pounding!
My how far they've come in the thirty years since being a quartet of 50's era glittery cowgirl attired young women busking on the street corners of Deep Ellum in Dallas. They sounded good then but not my cup of tea and Deep Ellum was the wrong environs for their schtick. Natalie Maines dad, Lloyd Maines was a major producer and raised their profile in the music world and the rest is history.

What happened in Helsinki ?
 
"US President Donald Trump, in a stunning rebuke of the US intelligence community, declined on Monday to endorse the US government's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, saying he doesn't "see any reason why" Russia would be responsible."

If that ain't treason I don't know what it. And I don't use the word "treason" lightly or regularly. 
The first thing that came to my mind when this song came out is to suggest it to RP!!
I'm so glad to hear it beaming on this amazing radio.
I'd heard the title cut, but nice to hear Bill delving into it. This song is intense.

So I have  ignored this band all along, because their name made them sound like another stupid country act.  But over the last 10 years, I heard little bits of their music that made me think maybe they are not a dumb country pop act after all.

And as for this song, it is very good.  I like it, who knew?  

And people will hate on this strictly based on politics. 
Finally, a new offering from the Dixie Chicks, new the Chicks.  Actually they need to come up with a wholly new name.  I rather like this song
So, haters...  Do you really think this song is that bad or do you just hate The (Dixie) Chicks for their politics?
Thank you for a great set today (11.35am New Zealand time). Some interesting new stuff!
Trying to stay relevant.  This song doesn't help.

Oh, now I get it.  A new album!  LOL
