Why I Wanted to Write This Song

No country is perfect, they all have some faults, but the saddest thing is when the people don’t get what they want from their leaders. There is no excuse for that. Everyone deserves a great democracy, a place where somebody cares about the little guys.

My excuses…

This is just a rough cut I did at home with my dad (we co-wrote it together). So please excuse the quality and the arrangement which is pretty basic. I wish it was better and would love to hear from anyone who can help out with this song (musicians, producers, video footage etc).

And we really need a hot lead guitarist for the instrumental section. Is there anyone out there? Please message me if you can help. Thanks.

Hope you like this song!

LYRICS – PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN

Copyright Info:  ©2015  Alycia Meehan & Pete Meehan

INTRO

Sometimes, sometimes
You know things have to change.

Sometimes, sometimes
You know things can’t stay the same.

VERSE 1

Used to really like this place

Long before it changed its face

Now it just ain’t the same anymore.

VERSE 2

It was innocent at the start

Then the big guys ripped it apart

Oh what a shame, oh what a shame

Now it’s a free-for-all.

CHORUS

Just… put your foot, put your foot down

Yeah… Put your foot, put your foot down

Stamp your feet…on the ground.

Just… put your foot, put your foot down

Yeah… Put your foot, put your foot down

Stamp your feet…on the freaking ground.

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

BRIDGE

Change, oh change

Can we have a little bit?

Of change, oh  change

Can you feel the time is near for change?

CHORUS & OUTRO

Just… put your foot, put your foot down

Yeah… Put your foot, put your foot down

Stamp your feet…on the ground.

Just… put your foot, put your foot down

Yeah… Put your foot, put your foot down

Stamp your feet…on the freaking ground

Yeah….

  1. Bless you, Alycia. Beautiful, truthful, straight from the heart. I’ll send this one around to my musician pals (all veteran songwriters & producers) & let’s see who’s the first to respond. You’re a newborn star in the firmament! :)

  2. you are truly amazing voice, nicest ever song I never heard… You are the brightest star ever… Keep it up Alycia Meehan and brother …

  3. Lovely song! Very inspiring. Sometimes we really do need to put our foot down and loudly say, “Enough!” to make a country great again…it just needs people like you and me :)
