Here’s something that can play on those joint radio spots: A country song has been written for Clint Didier’s Senate campaign.

Listen to “Hell To Pay.”

The song went up on his website Thursday evening. Campaign consultant Doug Simpson wrote it and a band he knows, the Watchmen, performed it, said another of Didier’s consultants, Kathryn Serkes.

“We were talking to them about Clint and they wanted to do a song,” Serkes said.

“I think the subtitle is ‘Didier’s D.C. Ode.'”

Sample lyrics:

“You sold us out, you crossed the line/ when you took our wealth and you told us lies/ You walked on the law that belongs to us /And you took away the heart of In God We Trust”

“It’s time to restore our great legacy/ He died on the cross to set us free”

“My name is Clint, won’t you hear my plea / and help 86 take back this great country”

No. 86 was Didier’s number as a tight end in the NFL.
