I just finished re-watching the entirety of The West Wing via Netflix. Although I got really good at dragging the iPad's playback slider the perfect amount to skip from the beginning of the opening credits to their conclusion, I didn't always leverage my newfound talent. W.G. "Snuffy" Walden's theme song for The West Wing was and remains a thing of beauty, perfectly setting the tone for the show.
Years ago, when my wife and I still lived in Los Angeles, I'd watch The West Wing every week when it aired. And eventually, I decided a theme song as masterful as The West Wing's deserved not just Snuffy's excellent orchestration, but also lyrics to accompany it.
That's when I wrote these words to The West Wing's theme. Enjoy.
