Down in sweet Florida, our governor is red, white and blue.

Down in sweet Florida, he’s shooting us straight, tellin ‘us the truth.

“Well, we ain’t been locked down, we still have our freedom,” Johnny Van Zant sings. “We can still see our friends and family, oh, our kids are in school and we can go to church on Sunday. And it’s all because DeSantis knows how to lead.”
