"Tax the rich feed the poor until there are no poor no more."

He should have been killed forty years ago for that one line of hippie liberal shit I've been clubbed to death with on classic rock radio for four decades.

I think it says "until there are no rich no more". Same effect.

And a great song- one of the first I learned on guitar.

You're right. That's even worse. I wish we could resurrect him from the dead and kill him again just for that.

Actually he decries "freaks and hairies, dykes and fairies..." That plus the "until there are no rich no more" line makes the song, if not downright right-wing, at least kinda libertarian.

God needed 45 minute mindless guitar solos.
