(Have you been banned yet? Do you know someone who has? This song, written by Ann M. Wolf, tells of her experience being shadow-banned on social media. After releasing her KIA tribute, "The Soldier's Cross/Battlefield Cross Ceremony," this video was systematically removed by social media admins from the profiles all who had shared it that week.)

Verse One:
Someone lit a fire and burned my Flag
& shared it so all could see
And so I posted my Soldier’s Cross, to speak of
The price paid for my Liberty.

For this, they found me and charged me
Gave no trial with no jury
I got my sentence for being “unfit”
I’m singin’ the Social Media Jailhouse Blues

Verse Two:
I posted my portrait
The admins liked it
Cause suddenly all my friends got my news
But then I shared one about my gun rights
They locked it outta my feed
So I’d get no views

For this they hound me and they watch me
While hiding behind the curtain at Oz
Free speech is only free to those whom they choose
I’m singin’ the Social Media Jailhouse Blues

Instrumental Break with the reading of the 1st Amendment

You know…Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

So go ahead & charge me
Cause for lovin’ my Bill of Rights, I stand guilty
And there are millions more
Who will never be silenced
And we will gladly sing the Jail House Blues
Standin’ on Freedom, sing the Jail House Blues
Yes, we’ll be singin’ the Social Media Jail House Blues.

Bill of Rights, 1st Amendment is in the public domain.
