The Dixie Chicks are BACK with a vengeance!

The Dixie Chicks have a new album coming out called TAKING THE LONG WAY; one of the tracks plays automatically when you go to their site.

This track is called NOT READY TO MAKE NICE, and it's obvious that they are giving a giant upraised finger to those who got enraged over their comments about Dumbya a few years back. Hat tip to AmericaBlog for letting me know about this and to the Chicks website for the lyrics:

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying

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
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said
Can’t you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

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
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

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
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

Go listen; it's worth it! The CD comes out May 23!

It's a catchy country cross over song. I wonder how many people will understand the meaning of the the middle section of the song. I had to listen a couple of times to be sure that the song wasn't about a personal relationship. Then again, I've been slow to understand many things.
