NEW SONG: “It’s So Easy In America Tonight” by Parzen Family Singers (election song)

Tracie and I were moved to tears by Van Jones’ commentary the night the election was called for Joe Biden.

“It’s easier to tell your kids character matters. It matters,” he said after it became abundantly apparent that Joe Biden will be our next president and Kamala Harris our next vice president. “Telling the truth matters. Being a good person matters.”

His words and the brio of the evening (plus my best friend’s Franciacorta and one two many glasses of Nebbiolo) inspired this song (video below).

It’s So Easy In America Tonight
by Parzen Family Singers

Lay your weary head to rest
The last four years have left us stressed
But now we know
That it’s all gonna be alright

I know we’ve seen our darker days
They made us feel like stowaways
But we’ve seen the future
And man it sure looks bright

It’s so easy to be yourself
You don’t have to be like no else
It’s so easy in America tonight

It’s so easy to love your neighbors
And maybe they’ll return the favor
It’s so easy in America tonight

Easier to teach your children
That all people were born free
Free to be the people they wanna be

I will still drive down your roads
And watch how your mighty rivers flow
America from sea to shining sea

I’ll play your blues and pay my dues
Cause the sweetest sounding kind of news
Just came over the airwaves on my TV

Easier to teach your children
That all people were born free
Free to be the people they wanna be

It’s so easy to be yourself
You don’t have to be like no else
It’s so easy in America tonight

It’s so easy to love your neighbors
And maybe they’ll return the favor
It’s so easy in America tonight
