Merle Hazard "Feelin Lousy" wins PBS competition

Story in PBS News Hour tonight, Paul Solman:
EDITOR'S NOTE: Last month, we featured a week-long series of songs by our country crooning friend Merle Hazard about the Euro-debt crisis: Spain, Ireland, Italy and Germany, and an encore of the infamous Greek Debt song. We invited you to submit your own lyrics about countries facing economic woe. The promised prize was a rendition of the winning song by Mr. Hazard himself.

Without further ado, here's Merle's interpretation of the winning entry: "Feelin' Lousy," by Davidthewriter about the financial crisis here in the U.S. It's sung to the Simon and Garfunkel tune, "Feelin' Groovy."

Go to Solman's post at PBS News Hour site, with a Merle Hazard (that's right, not Merle Haggard).
