Here are the lyrics that Hal Blake wrote for the Hicks campaign song while in jail. They are sung to the tune of "East Side, West Side." - "Up state, down state, cities and the sticks, The voters yell for a change, And babies cry for Hicks! Boys and girls together, Toms and Harrys and Dicks, Climb the big band wagon, While they cast their vote for Hicks!" See more
