I’m not ready to make nice

I’m not ready to back down.
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go
round and round and round.

It’s too late to make it right.
I probably wouldn’t if I could.
Cause I’m mad as hell,
I can’t bring myself
to do what it is you think I should.

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby,
with no regrets. And I don’t mind saying
it’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
daughter that she oughta hate a perfect stranger.

This song by the Dixie Chicks sure comes at just the right moment for me. You should see the music video; it’s available via bittorent. And (h/t Atrios), you can see them perform the song on Letterman over at YouTube.
UPDATE: Crooks and Liars has a downloadable version of the Letterman appearance.
UPDATE: The Dixie Chicks appeared on 60 Minutes on May 14, in an interview with Steve Kroft. The story at the link has some video clips as well, talking about “the comment” and what’s happened since.

  1. This is a great song and a great video. I hope the CD sells ten million plus. I also have the video out on my blog. I figure if radio stations refuse to play the songs, it’s up to the blogs to get it out there. At least CMT had the stones not to pull it.

  2. I have to admit I was surprised to see that CMT hosts the video on their site. That’s one plus for them, if only one.
