I have, of course. But the political part is kind of ambiguous. The wikipedia clears up part of it:

The Nixon part is nigh impenetrable.
In 1975, Van Zant said: "The lyrics about the governor of Alabama were misunderstood. The general public didn't notice the words 'Boo! Boo! Boo!' after that particular line, and the media picked up only on the reference to the people loving the governor." "The line 'We all did what we could do' is sort of ambiguous," Al Kooper notes. "'We tried to get Wallace out of there' is how I always thought of it." Towards the end of the song, Van Zant adds "where the governor's true" to the chorus's "where the skies are so blue," a line rendered ironic by the previous booing of the governor. Journalist Al Swenson argues that the song is more complex than it is sometimes given credit for, suggesting that it only looks like an endorsement of Wallace. "Wallace and I have very little in common," Van Zant himself said, "I don't like what he says about colored people."
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?
Most of my 'critical' evaluation of it is just hearing it playing in the background on the radio on long road trips.

Getting in a better friendship with the bookstore lady. She looks so close to the girl (redhead) in Daredevil.
Why does everyone have to be taken? It's a weird thought because you taking somebody is taking somebody. I am the problem wanting no problem.
