You Do Your Thing





L'affair Eich is the latest in a series of battles in this Cold Civil War, where one side is continually seeking to de-legitimize and marginalize much (and perhaps even a majority) of the population.  This will not end well, and we are already seeing push back, often from quite unexpected sources.

Most people just want to be left alone to get on with their lives, but increasingly feel like they're no longer being allowed to do so.  There sure as heck is a Country song for that.  It describes the feelings of those under assault in the Cold Civil War.  

You ain't gonna be my judge because my judge will judge us all one day

This isn't about Gay rights, at least not anymore.  It's about civil discourse in society and how that's under attack.  This will not end well.




Put me on a mountain, way back in the backwoods


Put me on a lake with biggin on the line


Put me 'round a campfire cookin' something I just cleaned


You do your thing, I'll do mine



I ain't tradin' in my family's safety


Just to save a little gas


And I'll pray to God any place, any time


And you can bet I'll pick up the phone if Uncle Sam calls me up

You do your thing, I'll do mine



Hey, I'll worry about me


You just worry about you


And I'll believe what I believe


And you can believe what you believe too

I ain't gonna spare the rod

Cuz that ain't what my daddy did


And I sure know the difference between wrong and right


You know, to me it's all just common sense


A broken rule, a consequence


You do your thing, I'll do mine

Hey, I'll worry about me


You just worry about you


And I'll believe what I believe


And you can believe what you believe too


I'm gonna keep on working hard


Make my money the old-fashioned way


I don't wanna piece of someone else's pie


I don't wanna piece of nobody else's pie


If I don't get my fill on life I ain't gonna blame no

one but me


You do your thing, I'll do mine



You ain't gonna be my judge


Cuz my judge will judge us all one day


You do your thing, I'll do mine
