LYRICS TO GOP (Jim Crow 2.0)
Parody of Boot Scootin’ Boogie
Lyrics by Don Caron

If you believe in our democracy
you ought to be outraged
by the GOP in Texas
voter-suppression being waged
making it much harder for the
black and brown people to vote
and making it much easier
to overturn an election result.

They claim that it’s a bill about
integrity of voting.
But let’s not play that game
It ain’t integrity they’re totin’.
This is just about the GOP
freaking out ‘cause they lost.
And they’re scared of losing power
so the voting roles they scour.
Just hope you’re not one the voters
they decide gets tossed.

Yeah longer lines bigger fines
it’s all in their new design GOP

If they conclude results are skewed
then the vote they will occlude. GOP!

Oh Jim Crow 2.0
That’s the way they wanna go. GOP!

Mail-in-voting’s one more thing
they want to now curtail.
An attempt to vote on Sundays
before 1 o’clock will fail.
You can purchase alcohol at ten
but voting’s gotta to wait till one.
It’s a way to stop the Souls to Polls
voting service Black Churches run.

24-hour drive through voting
now will just be banned.
Too many folks of color could just
go and vote at random.
The GOP wants it easier for judges
to declare elections void.
Yeah, so they yanked out the requirement
that fraud had to have been employed
‘cause that part of the law got in their way
and got them utterly annoyed.

Yeah, when they get beat they try to cheat,
use it to defeat defeat, GOP!

Legislate manipulate,
hide it cause it looks like hate, GOP!

Yeah, any vote that’s not for them
is simply un-American. GOP!

The Big Lie they apply,
anything to justify, GOP!

And if they lose it’s fake news,
just another liberal ruse. GOP!

Oh Jim Crow 2.0
That’s the way they wanna go. GOP!

Oh Jim Crow 2.0
Black and Brown is their new foe. GOP!

Oh Jim Crow 2.0
That’s the way they’re gonna go. GOP!


Jim Crow laws were state and local laws that enforced racial segregation in the Southern United States. These laws were enacted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by white Southern Democrat-dominated state legislatures to disenfranchise and remove political and economic gains made by black people during the Reconstruction period. Jim Crow laws were enforced until 1965.[3]

In practice, Jim Crow laws mandated racial segregation in all public facilities in the states of the former Confederate States of America and in some others, beginning in the 1870s. Jim Crow laws were upheld in 1896 in the case of Plessy vs. Ferguson, in which the U.S. Supreme Court laid out its “separate but equal” legal doctrine for facilities for African Americans. Moreover, public education had essentially been segregated since its establishment in most of the South after the Civil War in 1861–65.

The legal principle of “separate but equal” racial segregation was extended to public facilities and transportation, including the coaches of interstate trains and buses. Facilities for African Americans were consistently inferior and underfunded compared to facilities for white Americans; sometimes, there were no facilities for the black community at all. As a body of law, Jim Crow institutionalized economic, educational, and social disadvantages for African Americans living in the South.

In 1954, segregation of public schools (state-sponsored) was declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren in the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education.[ In some states, it took many years to implement this decision, while the Warren Court continued to rule against the Jim Crow laws in other cases such as Heart of Atlanta Motel, Inc. v. United States (1964).


“Boot Scootin’ Boogie”, written by Ronnie Dunn, is a song first recorded by the band Asleep at the Wheel for their 1990 album, Keepin’ Me Up Nights. American country music duo Brooks & Dunn recorded a cover version, which was included on their 1991 debut album, Brand New Man. It originally served as the B-side to their second single, “My Next Broken Heart”. It became the duo’s fourth single release and fourth consecutive number-one single on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.

The song’s success is credited with having sparked a renewed interest in line dancing throughout the United States. The song was Brooks & Dunn’s first crossover hit, reaching number 50 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. A dance mix of “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” can be found on Brooks & Dunn’s 1993 album, Hard Workin’ Man.
