Story behind the song
I wrote this song at the Kerrville Folk Festival with Brian and Rory in anticipation of my performance at Solidarity Day '91 - August 31st in Washington, DC. Health care seemed within our grasp back then, but was taken away from us by the insurance industry, big pharma, the hospital lobbies and "Harry and Louise." I'm ready to go Thelma and Louise if they get away with it again!
Lyrics
National Health Care Now - 1991 Anne Feeney, Brian QTN and Rory McLeod (BMI) Danny was born 10 weeks too soon Premature baby in the ICU Could have saved a dollar if we'd spent a dime What we did to Danny was a low-down crime Something's gone wrong, won't you tell me why The rich folks live and the poor folks die? Living is a thing that money can buy The rich folks live and the poor folks die! When I started this job check-ups were free Now there ain't no cure for what's wrong with me My health care benefits gone away With the lie that the company calls "co-pay." Private insurance just makes no sense Get a brand new liver at huge expense But dentures, glasses, hearing aids Are luxury items, friends, and don't get paid When you're poor getting health care's too damn hard Got the third world right here in our back yard Listen up Mr. Jones and Mr. Dow We want National Health Care Now! We want National Health Care Now! We want National Health Care Now! We want National Health Care Now! We want National Health Care Now!
