A country classic by Merle Haggard, the song's lyrics are a tongue-in-cheek declaration of hope for a future when war is over and the President does what he says he will do. It was released in 1981 as the lead-off single from his album Rainbow Stew Live at Anaheim Stadium and hit number four on the country charts.
The lyrics to this song are not difficult and can be easily mastered by the average person with some basic guitar playing skills. The chords are also very simple and easy to learn. This is a great country song for teaching kids how to sing along and play it with their friends or family.
Kacey Musgraves recently performed this classic song at a tribute concert in honor of Haggard. She did it with a throwback style that was just perfect for this song's message. Watch the video above to see her amazing performance!
