Former Texas Governor Rick Perry came to the stage to announce his presidential campaign on Thursday to the tune of an interesting song: a rap song that turned into a country song about Rick Perry.
"Rick Perry supporter, let's protect our border," the rap part says. "To hell with anyone who don’t believe in the USA / Rick Perry all the way."
"I won't back up / I don't back down / I been raised up / To stand my ground / Take my job / But not my gun / Tax my check till I ain't got none / 'Cept for the good lord up above / I answer to no one," the country part says.
"Give me my right to vote / My right to tote / The weapon of my choice, don't censor my voice," goes the second rap verse.
A spokesperson for Perry didn't immediately return a request for comment about the song.
The song appears to be a modified version of Colt Ford's "Answer to No One."
