Hmm, let me think.

The Honey Drippers, "Impeach The President"

The Byrds, "He Was A Friend Of Mine" (about assassination, but not constitutional)

Neil Young, "Campaigner"

They Might Be Giants, "James K. Polk" (surprisingly educational! Mentions the election and low tariffs)


Aside from the above-mentioned versions, other versions of White House Blues that I find on my ipod are from The Dillards (from the live A Long Time Ago album), a version from Broken Valley Road Show, a great band out of Montana, a version from The Bluegrass Sessions Bela Fleck configuration, and a Yonder Mountain String Band version.

Another search of my ipod for 'president' reveals the Norman and Nancy Blake tune 'President Garfield and the Mountain Ranger' - it's just an instrumental and I don't really know what the title references and a quick internet search didn't uncover anything. I have another N&N tune called the 'Constitution March'.

Incidentally, someone who's all about bluegrass and Seinfeld should probably be one of my best friends.


And continuing with the legal theme, I also find a few versions of 'Philadelphia Lawyer', as done by Woody Guthrie and then a bluegrass version by Bill Keith & Jim Rooney from 1962. It's not a song about legal issues, though.

CSNY's "Ohio" arguably counts. I'd hazard a guess that there are a few rap songs that would also fit the bill.
