A new Republican campaign anthem aimed at working families -- including truckers -- is scheduled to be introduced tonight after George W. Bush finishes his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia.

Called "We the People," the song is a mixture of country, rock and roll and blues, reports the Associated Press. The song includes lyrics such as "We pay the taxes, we pay the bills so they better pay attention on Capitol Hill."
The song is a new composition being released by country singer Billy Ray Cyrus. Joining Cyrus in singing the new song will be John Anderson, Waylon Jennings, Danni Leigh, Montgomery Gentry and Yankee Grey.
The song was written by Monty Powell, Jimmy Lee Sloas and Anna Wilson and produced by Dann Huff and Blake Chancey.
Here are the lyrics to "We the People":
"The farmers rise every morning at five
The truckers drive them 18 wheelers all night
The factory workers, they build it with pride
Twenty-four/seven down the assembly line
In every city, in every town
Somebody's got to make the world go 'round
Chorus:
We the people move it
We the people know
We the people
We run the country
We the people prove it
We're the heart and soul
We the people
We are the country

Here's to every salesman on the telephone line
And every waitress working hard for those dimes
The middle managers who punch overtime
And anyone fighting wars, fires and crimes
Day after day, year after year
The Mint might print them but the buck stops here
Repeat Chorus
We pay the taxes, we pay the bills
So they better pay attention up on Capitol Hill
Final Chorus
We the people move it
We the people know
We the people
We run the country
We the people prove it
We're the heart and soul
We the people
We are the country
We the people choose it
We the people vote
We the people
We run the country
We the people rock it
We the people roll
We the people
We are the country
