Dan Landry, a crawfisher from Louisiana wants the White House oil spill commission to ‘just do the right damn thing.’ Landry pulled out his guitar and started singing a folk tune reminiscent of a young Bob Dylan. Landry expressed his concern for the Gulf and explained to the commission that it shouldn’t be a policy issue, they should just fix the problem.

This might be the revolutionary song we need to get things moving in the Gulf Relief efforts because Dan Landry’s song is touching and real. Landry’s emotions ring through in his lyrics;

grew up on the southern shore Louisiana now there ain’t no more kickin mud off up a crawfish hole barefooted with a fishin pole make a living with my own two hands hell it’s part of being who I am went to workin in the oil fields that’s the only way to pay our bills and if I’m lucky I can have a son take him hunting like his daddy done get him workin on a shrimpin boat up and down the Gulf of Mexico eleven dead out on a deep sea rig doin what it is they had to live oil bleeding from a gaping hole up and down the Gulf of Mexico Morgan City down to Mobile Bay Pascagula down to FLA still I’m stuck out here for 7 more watching everything turn black offshore and brother even if they cap the well hell it’s just another oil spill our way of life won’t be around no more and all I wanted was to go back home. little brother he ain’t feeling well, what you spraying on that oil spill how many of us gonna lose our lives before the people get to work on time kickin mud up off a crawfish hole barefooted with a fishing pole goin back into the oil fields that’s the only way to pay our bills…
