Parody of Stand by Your Man with vocals by Deborah Bowman – Written by The Freedom Toast – Video by Parody Project
Trump summarized it perfectly when he said he could stand on 5th avenue and shoot someone and he wouldn’t lose any support. I paraphrased but that was the substance of it. Who would have thought that would be applicable to congressmen as well. Case in point, Mitch McConnell. It seems his career has degenerated to the point of being an apologist for Trump and literally nothing else.

LYRICS to STAND WITH YOUR MAN
by The Freedom Toast
These days it’s hard to be Republican
Giving your support to just one man.
You’ll have cringe times
and he’ll have good lines
sayin’ things that no one understands.
But if you praise him he’ll tweet verbatim,
even when it’s hard to understand.
And if you cross him, oh watch out for him
‘cause he’ll attack you just because he can.
Stand with your man.
Forget your pride and cling to
tortured spin that rings true
when hearts grow cold and lonely.
Stand with your man,
and show how you’ve forsaken
your integrity as Congressmen.
Stand with your man
Stand with your man
And show how you’ve forsaken
your integrity as Congressmen
Can’t stand that man!
ABOUT THE ORIGINAL SONG
“Stand by Your Man” is a song co-written by Tammy Wynette and Billy Sherrill and originally recorded by Wynette, released as a single in the United States on September 20, 1968. It proved to be the most successful record of Wynette’s career and is one of the most familiar songs in the history of country music. The song was placed at number one on CMT’s list of the Top 100 Country Music Songs.
Released as a single, it stayed number one on the U.S. country charts for three weeks. “Stand by Your Man” crossed over to the U.S. pop charts, peaking at number nineteen. It elevated Wynette—then one of many somewhat successful female country recording artists—to superstar status. It reached number one in the UK Singles Chart when the record was released in the United Kingdom in 1975, and also reached number one in the Netherlands. An album of the same name—which was also quite successful—was released in 1968. The song earned Wynette the 1970 Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Performance, Female – her second Grammy win in that category – and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.
Vocal accompaniment is provided by The Jordanaires, who provided background vocals on most of Wynette’s hit recordings.
The song was selected by the Library of Congress as a 2010 addition to the National Recording Registry, which selects recordings annually that are “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
