Green Day And Stephen Colbert Sing “Camptown Races” To Music Of "Good Riddance"

In this new segment Stephen Colbert has called "Lyrics We Can Afford to Songs We Love,” Green Day’s Billie Joe strums “Good Riddance” on guitar, while they replaced the lyrics with the words from Stephen Foster's “Camptown Races,” which happens to be part of the public domain (meaning it's free to use). 

They make the lyrics fit surprisingly well.
