John Rich sang his new song, “Raisin’ McCain,” at a waterside concert in Panama City, Florida on Friday evening. See photos, “Raisin’ McCain” lyrics and video and read John Rich’s biography here.





John Rich – half of the country music duo Big and Rich and also one of the judges on “Nashville Star” – staged a Friday night concert for John McCain in the Florida Panhandle. In between musical numbers, Rich declared himself a McCain supporter – even though he says he gets frustrated because he sees both sides of political issues. He wrote a song for McCain called “Raisin McCain,” and he performed it Friday night.

As he finished singing “Raisin’ McCain,” John McCain arrived in his Straight Talk Express bus. Cindy McCain, Florida Republican Governor Charlie Crist and his fiance were with McCain.

Here are the lyrics to the song, “Raisin’ McCain.”

RAISIN’ MCCAIN
Music and lyrics by John Rich

Well we’re all just raisin’ McCain
Everywhere across the USA
You can get on the train or get out of the way
We’re all just raisin’ McCain

And we’re all just raisin’ McCain
Everywhere across the USA
You can get on the train or get out of the way
We’re all just raisin’ McCain

Well he got shot down in a Vietnam town
Fighting for the red, white and blue
And they locked him up in the Hanoi Hilton
Thinking they could break him in two

He stayed strong, stayed extra long
‘Til they let all the other boys out
Now we’ve got a real man with an American plan
We’re going to put him in the big White House

Well we’re all just raisin’ McCain
Everywhere across the USA
You can get on the train or get out of the way
We’re all just raisin’ McCain

Play that American guitar, son
And we’re all just raisin’ McCain
Everywhere across the USA
You can get on the train or get out of the way

We’re all just raisin’ McCain
I said we’re all just raisin’ McCain
Everywhere across the USA
You can get on the train or get out of the way
We’re all just raisin’ McCain

Well you can get on the train or get out of the way
We’re all just raisin’ McCain
