“Hey Barack pack your bags, head to Chicago, take your teleprompter with you so you'll know where to go,” the country star sings on the opening track.

He once compared President Barack Obama to Hitler. Now Hank Williams Jr. is unleashing more criticism of the Commander in Chief.

The country star has just released a 10-disc album, Old School, New Rules, which again takes his anti-Obama message to the masses.

The lead track, "Take Back Our Country,” includes biting lyrics such as “Hey Barack pack your bags, head to Chicago, take your teleprompter with you so you'll know where to go.”

In an interview with Reuters, Williams revealed he’s already sold hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of "Take Back Our Country” shirts.

Williams also takes issue with ESPN, which pulled his iconic “Are You Ready for Some Football” theme song from its Monday Night Football broadcast after he compared Obama to Hitler.

“I'll go find a network wants to treat me right, y'all can take the change and stick it out of sight,” Williams sings.

Williams said it doesn’t bother him if people don’t connect with his album’s political messages.

“If you like it, fine; if you don't, great ... People everywhere from New York to California can't take it anymore, and they are ready for a change."
