Vibbar från Nås

Den amerikanske sångaren och textförfattaren Kris Kristofferson lär vara ättling till en dalmas från Nås. Han har skrivit många bra låtar som "Me and Bobby McG". Här "Don't Let the Bastards Get You".

Här är låten i en version som Kris gjorde efter USA:s första krig vid Persiska viken.

They're killing babies in the name of Freedom

We've been down that sorry road before
 
They let us hang around a little longer than they should have
 
And it's too late to fool us anymore
 
We've seen the ones who killed the ones with vision
 
Cold-blooded murder right before your eyes
 
Today they hold the power and the money and the guns
 
It's getting hard to listen to their lies.
 
And I've just got to wonder what my Daddy would've done
 
If he'd seen the way they turned his dream around
 
I've got to go by what he told me, try to tell the truth
 
And stand your ground
 
DON'T LET THE BASTARDS GET YOU DOWN
 
Mining roads
 
Killing farmers
 
Burning down schools full of children
 
Fighting communism
 
And I've just got to wonder what my Daddy would've done
 
If he'd seen the way they turned his dream around
 
I've got to go by what he told me, try to tell the truth
 
And stand your ground
 
DON'T LET THE BASTARDS GET YOU DOWN
