On today's show, we talked about songs that voters were writing for their respective candidates. Good tracks for Huckabee, Romney, Obama, and Clinton, or "H-ROC," as I like to call them. But we had a hard time finding a song for McCain, probably because he's been something of a comeback kid and songwriters haven't had long enough to do their thing.

We found a nice young man from South Carolina, Zack Dedonis, who describes himself as a amateur musician and McCain supporter. Asked him if he'd want to drop some verse about his would-be president. In about half an hour, he sent this:

G
Well it's about time, for John McCain
Am
Waited 8 Years Just To Get his Chance Again
C
He served his country, his plane got shot
D
Obama and Clinton, Ooh I think not
G
If you wanna give your money away
Am
Choose Clinton or Obama Today
C
But if you'd like your money to stay
D
Vote McCain, He won't tax us away
G
If you wanna live free and safe
Am
Vote McCain in the '08 Race
C
He's the man who can get it done
D
Vote McCain for every daughter and son

Here's the thing: Zack says he can't sing. We need you, Mellifluous McCain People. Here's a guitar track Zack sent.
