Nashville songwriter pens official Bitcoin country song

As many seek to gain exposure for the emerging Bitcoin marketplace, one Nashville songwriter and Bitcoin enthusiast is using a medium he knows best: country music. In “Ode to Satoshi,” Nashville’s John Barrett puts the story of the digital currency to music in an upbeat, mandolin- and harmonica-infused tune that explains what the Bitcoin buzz is about. “(The song) celebrates this new Internet technology that everyone is starting to use and that is starting to change the face of finance,” said Barrett, who also co-hosts the local podcast “Bitcoins and Gravy.” “This is the dawn of the age of digital currency and there is no going back.” Through the song, recorded at The Toy Box Studio in East Nashville, Barrett shares the history of Bitcoin and how its creator, who goes by the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, “came to save the day” while explaining the financial freedom that exists through a decentralized monetary system. He sings: “While the bankers count our money out for every government/ Old Bitcoin flies on through the skies of Virtuality/ A promise to deliver us from age old Tyranny.” [Source]

“Ode To Satoshi”
Well Satoshi Nakamoto that’s a name I love to say
And we don’t know much about him, but he came to save the day
When he wrote about the way things are
and the way things ought to be
He gave us all a protocol this world had never seen

Oh Bitcoin as you’re going into the old Blockchain
Oh Bitcoin I know you’re going to reign, gonna reign
Till everybody knows, everybody knows,
till everybody knows your name

Down the road it will be told about the Death of Old MtGox
About traitors trading alter coins and minors mining blocks
But them good old boys back in Illinois
and on down through Tennessee
See they don’t care to be a millionaire,
they’re just wanting to be free

Oh Bitcoin as you’re going into the old Blockchain
Oh Bitcoin I know you’re going to reign, gonna reign
Till everybody knows, everybody knows,
till everybody knows your name

From the ghettos of Calcutta to the halls of Parliament
While the bankers count Our money out for every government
Old Bitcoin flies on through the skies of Virtuality
A promise to deliver us from age old Tyranny

Oh Bitcoin as you’re going into the old Blockchain
Oh Bitcoin I know you’re going to reign, gonna reign
Till everybody knows, everybody knows,
till everybody knows your name
Till everybody knows, everybody knows,
till everybody knows your

“Give me some Exposure”
Everybody knows your name

Oh Lord pass me some more
Oh Lord before I have to go
Oh Lord pass me some more
Oh Lord … before I have to … go …
