Political musings from Warren E. Peterson

Tennessee Ford Update

Posted by Warren Peterson on September 9, 2009

Thanks to reader Tom B. for alerting me to this one.

Classical music trained turned country singer, Tennessee Ernie Ford, had a hit song in the mid 1950s called “Sixteen Tons”. It told the story of the hard life of a coal miner. An impersonator has updated the song to today substituting, by inference, taxpayer for coal miner. Enjoy.

Two Trillion Tons
