Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

This one in my head sounds an awful lot like this one, Very similar driving beat and almost the same cadence to the vocals, but it sounds like David Peel from David Peel and the Lower East Side singing it, and the guitar work has Frank Zappa written all over it. Sorry, but that is best I can give you as to what I hear when I read it.
 

R.I.P. US Bill of Rights 

I hear the tank treads clanking,
I think they're heading this way
I hear the jack-boots stomping,
They're getting louder each day.

I've heard news-men are jailed.
For not revealing their sources
We have freedom of presses?
Is that bull-shit or horses?

The Right to Assemble,
Is Not Free-Speech Zones,
All you really are saying,
Is "Stay in your homes!"

I hear the tank treads clanking,
I think they're heading this way
I hear the jack-boots stomping,
They're getting louder each day.

Our old Founding Fathers,
They warned about you,
Gave the Second Amendment,
And told us what to do.

But your oppressor has H-bombs,
What will you employ?
When compared to the H-bomb,
An A-K's just a toy.

I hear the tank treads clanking,
Who's going to stand in their way?
I hear the jack-boots stomping,
And you want to take WHAT AWAY?

There's really no choice,
In a world gone insane.
It'll only get worse,
'Less we start using our brains.
