Singing whiskey for my men, and beer for my horses...

I'm the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock and the hard place
And I'm down on my luck

They Were Having a Sale at the Gun Store




(The Jukes Boys)
Lyrics by: Leslie Fish







They were having a sale at the gun store; the Jukes boys decided to go
With the moonshine gone bad, and the poaching gone thin
Their business was doing quite slow
So they bought them a lot of hand-cannons, intent upon robb'ry and more
But they never once thought to consider
That they weren't alone in the store.

Next in line was a little old lady, and next was a handsome young dame
After her, came a man in a wheelchair
Then a lad with an underweight frame
They watched while the Jukes boys were buying, and considered what such boys would do
Then they looked at each other, they said not a word
But bought themselves hand-cannons too.

Well, that night Billy Jukes went out hunting; he spotted a girl who looked great
But when he pulled her into an alley
She pulled out a big 38.
He thought this was feminine bluffing; "Naw, girl, you can't shoot me," he said
Well, the very next second she proved he was wrong
And Billy Jukes quite lost his head.

Well, Joey Jukes went for the money, so he went to a big liquor store
And he hauled out his two-barrelled shotgun
The moment he walked through the door
He aimed at all present, and bellowed "Give me all ya got, or yer dead!"
So the counterboy lifted his 44 mag
And did just what Joey Jukes said.

Now, Beauregarde Jukes chose his pickin's with more care and planning by far
He jumped on a little old lady
Who was just getting into her car
But she promptly reached into her handbag and used the best choice she could make
For a 25 auto has such light recoil
As even a frail hand can take.

Now Roy Jukes was good at house burgling and still thought he'd escape without harm
When the owner rolled in with a shotgun
Braced on his wheelchair's arm
"Well, they'll bust you for shooting--" Roy started, but the man's shotgun cut off the lot
And he said, as he muscled Roy's corpse out the door
"There are no ballistics on shot."

So that was the end of the Jukes boys; the cops had to clean up the mess
So they slandered gun-owning civilians
All over the liberal press
But the victors who might have been victims go silent, although this is true:
So long as there's one weapon left in the world,
You better have you a gun too.

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this

----- three ring circus sideshow of Freaks
Here in this hopeless hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any time. Any day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Fret for your figure and Fret for your latte and
Fret for your hairpiece and Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your prozac and Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and Fret for your car.

It's a ----- three ring circus sideshow of Freaks
Here in this hopeless hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any time. Any day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipsits.

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will cuz
I sure could use a vacation from this
Silly sit, stupid sit...

One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.
Learn to swim.
Mom's gonna fix it all soon.
Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to be.
Learn to swim.

F L Ron Hubbard and F all his clones.
F all those gun-toting Hip gangster wannabes.
F retro anything. F your tattoos.
F all you junkies and F your short memory.
F smiley glad-hands With hidden agendas.
F these dysfunctional, Insecure actresses.
Learn to swim.

Cuz I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.
Mom please flush it all away.
I wanna watch it go right in and down.
I wanna watch it go right in.
Watch you flush it all away.

Time to bring it down again.
Don't just call me pessimist.
Try and read between the lines.
I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend.
I wanna see it all come down.
suck it down.
flush it down.

They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa

from: Dr. Demento's Delights
Warner Bros. 1975 BS 2855 0698
Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to
leave because I'd go berserk?? Well...
You left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse and now you see
I've gone completely out of my mind.. And..
They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa
To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be
happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!!

You thought it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed when I had said
that loosing you would make me flip my lid.. RIGHT???
I know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed you laughed and
laughed and then you left, but now you know I'm utterly mad... And..


They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa,
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.
To the happy home. With trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket
weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're

I cooked your food, I cleaned your house, and this is how you pay me back
for all my kind unselfish loving deeds.. Huh??
Well you just wait, they'll find you yet and when they do they'll put you
in the ASPCA, you mangy mutt!!! And...

They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa.

"Hey Man, Nice Shot"
by Filter

I wish I would've met you
now it's a little late
what you could've taught me
I could've saved some face
they think that your early ending
was all wrong
for the most part they're right
but look how they all got strong
that's why I say hey man nice shot
what a good shot man
a man
has gun
hey man
have fun
nice shot
now that the smokes gone
and the air is all clear
those who were right there
got a new kind of fear
you'd fight and you were right
but they were just to strong
they'd stick it in your face
and let you smell what they consider wrong
that's why I say hey man nice, nice shot
what a good shot man
a man
has gun
hey man
have fun
nice shot
I wish I would've met you
I wish I would've met you
I'd say
nice shot

"I shoot back" , by Ted Nugent

"There was a time when man stood strong
right was right and wrong was wrong

I shoot back, sho' nuff bad
I shoot back shoot 'em up.

Now is the time, Be loud and proud
Got to make your stand avoid the crowd

Now I shoot back and I shoot 'em up
Time to shoot back, Sho' nuff bad.

My kids know 'bout family ties
Reward the truth and punish the liars.

Shoot back, Got to shoot back
Time for you to shoot back
Cause it's my life and I'm in charge.

"Make your stand."

Random but useless musical factoid:

The Filter song 'Hey Man, Nice Shot' is actually a reference to a civil servant named Bud Dwyer who blew his brains out with a revolver on live TV back in the late 1970's, early 1980's.

Would but more civil servants follow his noble, self-sacrificial actions...

DON'T TREAD ON ME
Metallica


Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
Never begins it, never, but once engaged
Never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage

Don't tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you will hear evermore

Don't tread on me

Love it or live it, she with the deadly bite
Quick is the blue tongue, forked as the lighting strike
Shining with brightness, always on surveillance
The eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance

Don't tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you will hear evermore

Don't tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war

Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling
of her tail

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you will hear evermore

Don't tread on me

I think I like every song listed, especially anything by Warren Zevon, and Flight of the Valkyries, the song that convinced my kids that all classical music does not suck.

Mulliga
March 23, 2004, 08:09 PM
As much as I like the Beatles, I think that song is supposed to be ironic.

A theme for THR has to be original, not some theme associated with another work. "Ride of the Valkyries," for example, will always be remembered for being in "Apocalypse Now."

THR is all about guns. As much fun as it is to talk about SHTF and other craziness, the song has to be about the RKBA.

This is difficult, because many of the groups I like also buy into blissninny hysterics. "Rage Against the Machine," for example, while exhibiting a healthy paranoia about government, also have Michael Moore on their website. :barf:

So make it something, anything, by Ted Nugent. :)

OK, on second thought the Soldiers' Chorus from Gounod's Faust. The Hunters' Chorus of Weber makes for a better quick step march.

Chorus
Hail to the heroes
of long ago
men who courageously
met the foe
We fought like you
for the cause of right
our spirit is high,
our honour is bright.

For you, dear native land,
let our banner fly,
at your call and command
we will glady die.
Proud and happy we are,
we have wond the fight,
the battle is done,
the victory won.

Chorus

Our honour is bright.
Now we are home,
our duty done,
the time has come
for celebration.
Let us rejoice,
the victory's won.
A happy day for everyone.
Sweethearts and friends
await us here
amid the festive jubilation,
and later on
they'll gather near.
To hear the tales,
the thrilling tales about the war.
The war is won, our duty's done,
we're coming home!

Chorus

CHORUS:

Black powder and alcohol,
D
When the states and the cities fall,
G E
When your back is against the wall;
A
Black powder and alcohol.


A
Gimme charcoal to the measure two:
F
Send the bullet where you want it to.
D
Gimme sulphur to the measure three:
A
Make the powder gonna keep you free.
G E
Gimme saltpetre, measure fifteen:
A
Sweetest shooting that you've ever seen! (chorus)


Gimme water, yeast, and veggie-trash:
Leave it sitting in the slurry-mash.
When it's ready, put it in the still:
If you can't heat it, then the sunlight will.
Draw the alcohol away, and then
Put the slurry back, and start again! (chorus)

Booze'll clean your cuts, or run your car.
You can make it anywhere you are.
Black powder in your cartridge shell
Will send the robbers running clean to Hell.
You can make them if you just know how.
So kids, remember what I tell you now! (chorus & repeat

"Well, they'll bust you for shooting--" Roy started, but the man's shotgun cut off the lot
And he said, as he muscled Roy's corpse out the door
"There are no ballistics on shot."

So that was the end of the Jukes boys; the cops had to clean up the mess
So they slandered gun-owning civilians
All over the liberal press
But the victors who might have been victims go silent, although this is true:
So long as there's one weapon left in the world,
You better have you a gun too.

Personally I'd pick something by Johnny Cash.

Or the Highwaymen.

Because I'm pretty sure that PJ harvey's "Big Exit" is a pro-gun tune, not all of our members like PJ.'

"Lawyers Guns and Money" is a fine choice.

"Bad Company" is a good choice.

Or perhaps the silly litty county ditty "Barrel of My Gun" by Slim Cessna's Auto Club.

Or the slightly creepy "American Wheeze" by Sixteen Horsepower.

"A to the K" by Cypress Hill? (yes it's about winning a gunfight with a Kalashnikov... lyrics wouldn't pass the Art's Gramma test)

"Shotgun" by Southern Culture on the Skids would be a FINE choice, well at least for playing at the annual THR barbeque.

Too many choices.

"Simple Man"

I ain't nothin' but a simple man
They call me a redneck I reckon that I am
But there's things going on
That make me mad down to the core.

I have to work like a dog to make ends meet
There's crooked politicians and crime in the street
And I'm madder'n hell and I ain't gonna take it no more.

We tell our kids to just say no
Then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go
Slaps him on the wrist and then he turns him back out on the town.

Now if I had my way with people sellin' dope
I'd take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope
I'd hang 'em up high and let 'em swing 'til the sun goes down

Well, you know what's wrong with the world today
People done gone and put their Bible's away
They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land
The good book says it so I know it's the truth
An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth
You better watch where you go and remember where you been
That's the way I see it I'm a Simple Man.

Now I'm the kinda man that'd not harm a mouse
But if I catch somebody breakin in my house
I've got twelve guage shotgun waiting on the other side

So don't go pushing me against my will
I don't want to have to fight you but I dern sure will
So if you don't want trouble then you'd better just pass me on by

As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse
For the raping and the killing and the child abuse
And I've got a way to put an end to all that mess

Just take them rascals out in the swamp
Put 'em on their knees and tie 'em to a stump
Let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest

You know what's wrong with the world today
People done gone and put their Bible's away
They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land
The Good Book says it so I know it's the truth
An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth
You better watch where you go and remember where you been
That's the way I see it I'm a Simple Man

Of course it wouldn't be very fitting for our female members, but they could pick their own.:D

we got doctors,
I even seen bears in black 'copters
And we like to debate AK versus AR...
Hmmm mmm mmmm MMM mmm I love THR....

chorus:
I love THR, it's my kinda place,
Threads about black tac gear
Put a big smile on my face
No cover charge, come as you aaaaaaaaaare,
Hmmm mmmm mmm MMM mmm I love THR...

We got cowboys, we got truckers,
Broke as heck fools called crufflers,
We got talkers,
We got fighters,
reloaders and others,
And the vetern's talk about their battle scars,

(chorus)

I've seen wheel guns,
We got High Powers,
Blue collared boys and rednecks,
Some Glock lovers,
Lots of Rugers,
I've even seen mutant bears and zombies.
And we like to send our .50 so ungodly far.
Hmmm mmmm mmm MMM mmm I love THR...

(breakdown)

I like my Taurus,
I like my Sprinfrield,
I like to take 'em out shooting,
I like to clean 'em now and then,
But I love THR.
It's my kinda place.

Iced Earth - Declaration Day

A desperate situation
Forced to retaliation
The task ahead, a burden
Men will suffer, that's for certain
We'll charge into the fire
The cause, we must inspire
We raise our fist to tyranny
A high price, Freedom is not free

The odds are stacked against us
But with our resolve relentless
And arrogance their Weakness
Our cause is just, we won't be beaten
Upon this declaration
Will come a brand new nation
Where men are seen as equal
Governed by and for the people

- Chorus -
So we make our stand and pray
On this declaration day
For independence I will fight
With liberty I will defy
So we make our stand and pray
On this declaration day
Give me liberty or give me death
I'll fight 'till my last breath

With virtue as our beacon
Our cause is charged as treason
Battle worn and starving
Through the hell of war we'll keep marching
The birth of our new nation
An act of desperation
We'll force king George down to his knees
Capitulation

- Repeat Chorus -

Would I be amused
Would you be impressed
That I had the power
To put a hole into your chest?
When the kids are crying
And the welfare check's been spent
Would I rob a liquor store
To get some money for the rent?

If I had a gun

Would I start smoking Marlboros?
Would I stop smoking Kents?
Would I gain some new respect?
Would I gain some confidence?
Would I suddenly go crazy
And shoot my family?
And see myself years later
On some crime show on TV

If I had a gun

Would I wear it in a holster?
Would I keep it concealed?
Would I put it on the table
Every time that I'm misdealed?
When I hear a nearby gunshot
When I'm up at night alone
Would I feel a little safer
Here in my urban home?

If I had a gun

EDIT: Just thought of a good one. "I'll Stand My Ground" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Relates quite well to fighting gun grabbers.

Well I won't back down
No I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

No I'll stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin me down
gonna stand my ground
... and I won't back down

Chorus:
(I won't back down...)
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
(and I won't back down...)
hey I will stand my ground
and I won't back down

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
in a world that keeps on pushin me around
but I'll stand my ground
...and I won't back down

Chorus

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
hey I won't back down
hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
hey I will stand my ground
and I won't back down
No I won't back down...

--------------------

Also of note is "Refugee":

We got somethin' we both know it
We don't talk too much about it
Yeah it ain't no real big secret all the same
Somehow we get around it
Listen it don't really matter to me baby
You believe what you want to believe
You see you don't have to live like a refugee

Somewhere, somehow somebody
Must have kicked you around some
Tell me why you wanna lay there
And revel in your abandon
Listen it don't make no difference to me baby
Everybody's had to fight to be free
You see you don't have to live like a refugee
Now baby you don't have to live like a refugee

Baby we ain't the first
I'm sure a lot of other lover's been burned
Right now this seems real to you
But it's one of those things
You gotta feel to be true

Somewhere, somehow somebody
Must have kicked you around some
Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped
Tied up, taken away and held for ransom
It don't really matter to me
Everybody's had to fight to be free
You see you don't have to live like a refugee
I said you don't have to live like a refugee

Lyrics for Song: Big Iron
Lyrics for Album: Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songs
To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day
Hardly spoke to folks around him didn't have too much to say
No one dared to ask his business no one dared to make a slip
for the stranger there among them had a big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip

It was early in the morning when he rode into the town
He came riding from the south side slowly lookin' all around
He's an outlaw loose and running came the whisper from each lip
And he's here to do some business with the big iron on his hip
big iron on his hip

In this town there lived an outlaw by the name of Texas Red
Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead
He was vicious and a killer though a youth of twenty four
And the notches on his pistol numbered one an nineteen more
One and nineteen more

Now the stranger started talking made it plain to folks around
Was an Arizona ranger wouldn't be too long in town
He came here to take an outlaw back alive or maybe dead
And he said it didn't matter he was after Texas Red
After Texas Red

Wasn't long before the story was relayed to Texas Red
But the outlaw didn't worry men that tried before were dead
Twenty men had tried to take him twenty men had made a slip
Twenty one would be the ranger with the big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip

The morning passed so quickly it was time for them to meet
It was twenty past eleven when they walked out in the street
Folks were watching from the windows every-body held their breath
They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death
About to meet his death

There was forty feet between them when they stopped to make their play
And the swiftness of the ranger is still talked about today
Texas Red had not cleared leather fore a bullet fairly ripped
And the ranger's aim was deadly with the big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip

It was over in a moment and the folks had gathered round
There before them lay the body of the outlaw on the ground
Oh he might have went on living but he made one fatal slip
When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip

Silent Running by Mike and the Mechanics

Take the children and yourself
And hide out in the cellar
By now the fighting will be close at hand
Don't believe the church and state
And everything they tell you
Believe in me, I'm with the high command

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

There's a gun and ammunition
Just inside the doorway
Use it only in emergency
Better you should pray to God
The Father and the Spirit
Will guide you and protect from up here

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer
Never hint at what you really feel
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)
(Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running?
Calling you, calling you

A rollicking little ditty by James McMurtry called Choctaw Bingo has this description of a High Road outing, amongst its other lyrics:

"…..bob and mae come up from
some little town way down by
lake taxoma where he coaches football
they were two-A champions for two years running
but he says they wont be this year
no they wont be this year
and he stopped off in tuska at the pop knife and gun place
bought a sks rifle and a couple full cases of that steel core ammo
with the beardam primers from some east bloc nation
that no longer needs em
and a desert eagle thats one great big old pistol
i mean fifty caliber made by bad-a$$ 'ebrews
and some surplus tracers for that old BAR
of slatons as soon as it gets dark
were gonna have us a time
were gonna have us a time…….."

How about this one? It's a little grim, but it illustrates very well the original meaning of the 2nd Amendment.......

"Vote with a Bullet"
by Corrosion of Conformity

Vote!
This long hand that breaks our backs
Still casting shadows on all that we see
Unjustified....mercy killing is just a feeling
To keep our numbers from being free

(1st chorus)
Prison for praise is not worth thinking
Sin is still in and our ballots are shrinking
So unleash the dogs- the only solution
Forgive and forget? F*** no
I'm talking about a revolution

The prophet man's got a needle in his hand
Draws his dreams from your soul- Bleeding minds into sand
The year of the fear has arrived decades too late
And our right to stand and fight is now sealed in fate

(repeat 1st chorus)

One last chance mission with a vision
"Cos our lives are just cards in their stack
Our time is short, but theirs is shorter
How much longer can they hold us back?

(2nd Chorus)
Prison for praise- the obvious answer
Once had power mad - living disaster
Don't f*** with me 'cos I'm on the freedom train
That bears no name- this time
I'm voting with a bullet

The view they once knew made our nooses too tight
The justice in swine
The Devil in God

So God bless my soul- I've got total control
And the crosshairs lined up dead in my sights

I'm Voting with a Bullet

Seriously, I just heard AC/DCs "Shoot to Thrill" on the radio, and it reminded me how good a song it is, and how great it would be for THR.

Except for the "too many women, too many pills" part, this is a great song. Well, I guess lots of people here listen to Rush Limbaugh, so... nevermind.

AC-DC's Lyrics - Shoot To Thrill Lyrics

All you women who want a man of the street
But you don’t know which way you wanna turn
Just keep a coming and put your hand out to me
’cause I’m the one who’s gonna make you burn

I’m gonna take you down - down, down, down
So don’t you fool around
I’m gonna pull it, pull it, pull the trigger

Shoot to thrill, play to kill
Too many women with too many pills
Shoot to thrill, play to kill
I got my gun at the ready, gonna fire at will

Yeah

I’m like evil, I get under your skin
Just like a bomb that’s ready to blow
’cause I’m illegal, I got everything
That all you women might need to know

I’m gonna take you down - yeah, down, down, down
So don’t you fool around
I’m gonna pull it, pull it, pull the trigger

Shoot to thrill, play to kill
Too many women with too many pills
Shoot to thrill, play to kill
I got my gun at the ready, gonna fire at will
’cause I shoot to thrill, and I’m ready to kill
I can’t get enough, I can’t get the thrill
I shoot to thrill, play to kill
Yeah, pull the trigger

Pull it, pull it, pull it, pull the trigger

Oh

Shoot to thrill, play to kill
Too many women, with too many pills
I said, shoot to thrill, play to kill
I got my gun at the ready, gonna fire at will
’cause I shoot to thrill, and I’m ready to kill
And I can’t get enough, and I can’t get my thrill
’cause I shoot to thrill, play it again

Yeah

Shoot you down

Yeah
I’m gonna get you to the bottom and shoot you
I’m gonna shoot you
Oh hoo yeah yeah yeah

I’m gonna shoot you down yeah yeah
I’m gonna get you down
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Shoot you, shoot you, shoot you, shoot you down
Shoot you, shoot you, shoot you down

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooooh

I’m gonna shoot to thrill
Play to kill
Shoot to thrill

Anyhoo, grampster, I just heard about that tune on the Russian Mosin Nagant forum last night, and, BAM, there it is! I know your pain. The poster on that forum is waiting for his C&R license, as am I. Apropos indeed!:D

Anybody ever heard On the Border by The Eagles? Not exactly gun related, but politically related enough to be thought provoking.

Cruisin' down the center of a two way street
Wond'rin' who is really in the driver's seat
Mindin' my bus'ness along comes big brother
Says, Son, you better get on one side or the other.
I'm out on the border, I'm walkin' the line
Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order
I'm try'n' to change this water to wine.
After a hard day, I'm safe at home
Foolin' with my baby on the telephone
Out of nowhere somebody cuts in and
Says, Hmm, you in some trouble boy, we know where you're been.
I'm out on the border
I thought this was a private line
Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order
I'm try'n' to change this water to wine
Never mind your name, just give us your number, mm
Never mind your face, just show us your card, mm
And we wanna know whose wing are you under
You better step to the right or we can make it hard
I'm stuck on the border
All I wanted was some peace of mind
Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order
I'm try'n' to change this water to wine
On the border
On the border
On the border
On the border
On the border
Leave me be , I'm just walkin' this line
On the border
On the border
All I wanted was some peace of mind, peace of mind
I'm out on the border

Can't you see I'm tryin to change this water to wine
Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order
Sick and tired of all your law and order
Sick and tired of it

My vote also goes to the late, GREAT Warren Zevon for "Lawyers, Guns and Money" or "Rottweiler Blues"

I can't remember the artist but there is a Texas folksinger that has a song called The Gringo Pistolero.Some of you guys here know who he is but the name escapes me and I'm at work so can't check.Good song though.The fella carries colt autos and uses a springfield in the song.A part of it goes "with a red tear from a third eye...."Dang,wish I could remember more.:mad:

Motor - T the singer songwriter you are thinking of is Allen Wayne Damron. I am proud to call Allen my friend. If you'll PM me with your e-mail I'll forward it on to Allen and get him to send you info on ordering CD's. But in the meantime, the full verse you're thinking of is...

Roll your sight up to 800 and hold a yard left for the wind.
There's one, by God,Aviso that will never flash again.
Weeping red tears from a third eye is a gift he cannot feel,
From the Springfield of the Gringo Pistolero!

Another good verse comes later when he enters the jachal where the bandits are holding Sra. Otero.

Angry cuthroats said, "Ignore the weeping Lady on the floor!"
And through the back door came the Gringo Pistolero.

Big Colt autos spitting thunder death at everything that moved
Flashing lightening in a jachal long and narrow.
Ending hate and greed and cruelty with final flying truth
From the sure hand of the Gringo Pistolero.

One hot and smoking pistol dropped down empty in the dirt
And another flashed like magic from inside the Gringo's shirt.
And the lead storm never stopped 'til there was noone left unhurt.
But the Lady and the Gringo Pistolero.

Allen has many wonderful songs about shooting and the old west and the new west. If you ever have a chance to hear him perform in person, please don't miss it. He usually tells great stories between songs.

My Bad.
I apologize to Shanghai and Motor T for getting their posts confused. But all the info on Damron still applies.

I could agree with Flight of the Valkyries, BUT I'd have to actually say...



BLUE OYSTER CULT - DON'T FEAR THE REAPER...

That's the one Holly.If more of these guys knew the song it would be the runaway best choice.

Don't Fear the Reaper is cool and all.... but I can't listen to it now without thinking of that Saturday Night Live sketch with Christopher Walken... "Needs more cowbell!"

jrhines, the last I heard was that SG started recording their new record last month. Haven't heard too much since then, I understand one of the band members (the drummer, I think.......might be wrong about that) had some kind of family emergency, so they were delayed.

Not too many people I know have heard of them. They are pretty good, I've only been listening to them for about a year. I love "Dance of the Fools"- good tune.

I think Stuck Mojo broke up a few years ago. They were pretty good, too,
but probably weren't for everyone- pretty hard.

Have you ever listened to Bolt Thrower? If you like Stuck Mojo, you'll probably dig them, too:

"For Victory"

"As daylight returns
The fires of hope still burn
Crawl through darkened light
Sickened by the mournful sight
tears fall from eyes
not sure what has been done
Sorrow creeps throughout my soul
All is lost, none have won

The battle smoke remains
begin to feel the pain
Alone now stagger on
Unsure how it begun
Through time war prevails
Thoughts, fears cast aside
Face the consequences alone
With honour-valour-pride

As fire fills the sky
We once believedd in life
Now time to die
...for Victory

Now in deaths glory
Man's final destiny
The final price to pay
....for Victory

"They shall not grow old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We shall remember them

We shall remember them"

‘Ballad of The High Road Way’
To the tune of ‘Ballad of the Green Berets’

V1: Posting shooters on the Net, fearless posters who’s flames I get
Folks who mean just what they say, the strange folks of The High Road way.
Refrain: Lots of thoughts to get off their chest, these are folks among the best,
One hundred folks post to my thread, but only three get what I said.
V2: Newbie posters I’ll gladly stand, I want to kick trolls in the gland
Folks who post all night and day, new threads on The High Road way.
Refrain: Lots of thoughts to get off their chest, these are folks among the best,
One hundred folks post to my thread, but only three get what I said.
V3: Out in the yard, a ticked spouse waits; Our High Roader has a date with fate, “Just one more post to the High Road folk; One just to thank Oleg Volk”
Refrain: Lots of thoughts to get off their chest, these are folks among the best,
One hundred folks post to my thread, but only three get what I said.

With apologies to SSG Barry Sadler!

The Grateful Dead, "Stagger Lee"
Words by Robert Hunter; music by Jerry Garcia
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
1940 Xmas evening with a full moon over town
Staggerlee met Billy DeLyon
and he blew that poor boy down
Do you know what he shot him for?
What do you make of that?
'Cause Billy DeLyon threw lucky dice,
won Staggelee's Stetson hat

Baio, Baio, tell me how can this be?
You arrest the girls for turning tricks
but you're scared of Staggerlee
Staggerlee is a madman and he shot my Billy dead
Baio you go get him or give the job to me

Delia DeLyon, dear sweet Delia-D
How the hell can I arrest him when he's twice as big as me?
Don't ask me to go downtown - I wouldn't come back alive
Not only is that mother big but he packs a .45

Baio Delia said just give me a gun
He shot my Billy dead now I'm gonna see him hung
She waded to DeLyon's Club through Billy DeLyon's blood
Stepped up to Staggerlee at the bar
Said Buy me a gin fizz, love

As Staggerlee lit a cigarette she shot him in the balls
Blew the smoke off her revolver, had him dragged to city hall
Baio, Baio, see you hang him high
He shot my Billy dead and now he's got to die

Delia went a walking down on Singapore Street
A three-piece band on the corner played "Nearer, My God, to Thee"
but Delia whistled a different tune...what tune could it be?

The song that woman sung was Look out Staggerlee
The song that Delia sung was Look out Staggerlee
The song that woman sung was Look out Staggerlee
The song that Delia sung was Look out Staggerlee

From Marty Robbins, although I know it also from The Dead ...one of the most underated cowboy bands ever ...

EL PASO
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Out in the West Texas town of El Paso I fell in love with a Mexican
girl.
Nighttime would fine me in Rose's Cantina,
Music would play and Felina would whirl.

Black as the night were the eyes of Felina,
Wicked and evil while casting a spell.
My love was strong for this Mexican maiden,
I was in love, but in vain I could tell.

One night a wild young cowboy came in, wild as the West Texas wind...
Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing,
With wicked Felina, the girl that I love.

So in anger I challenged his right for the love of this maiden;
Down went his hand for the gun that he wore.
My challenge was answered, in less than a heartbeat
The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor.

Just for a moment I stood there in silence,
Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done.
Many thoughts ran through my mind as I stood there;
I had but one chance and that was to run.

Out through the back door of Rose's I ran, out where the horses were
tied...
I picked a good one; he looked like he could run,
Up on his back and away I did ride.

Just as fast as I could from the West Texas town of El Paso,
Out thru the badlands of New Mexico.
Back in El Paso my life would be worthless;
Everything's gone in life nothing is left.

But it's been so long since I've seen the young maiden,
My love is stronger that my fear of death.
I saddled up and away I did go, riding alone in the dark...
Maybe tomorrow a bullet may find me,
Tonight nothing's worse than this pain in my heart.

And as last here I am on the hill overlooking El Paso,
I can see Rose's Cantina below.
My love is strong and it pushes me onward, down off the hill to Felina
I go.

Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys,
Off to my left ride a dozen or more.
shouting and shooting; I can't let them catch me,
I've got to make it to Rose's back door.

Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel a deep burning pain in my side ...
It's getting harder to stay in the saddle.
I'm getting weary, unable to ride.

But my love for felina is strong and I rise where I’ve fallen;
Though I am weary, I can’t stop to rest.
I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle,
I feel the bullet go deep in my chest.

From out of nowhere, felina has found me,
Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side.
Cradled by two loving arms that I’ll die for,
One little kiss and felina good-bye.

You've forgotten the true masters: Bolt Thrower. These guys invented War Metal!

But I think that this is the best clip for THR. I strongly suggest you give it a listen. Its from a the Drop Kick Murphys CD titled The Gangs All Here:

http://www.umit.maine.edu/~justin.rose/fearnothing.mp3
Rally together, gather around;
the scent of a battle draws near!

The cannon sounds, a new year begins;
fear nothing now the GANGS ALL HERE!

^A great tune to blast in the car.

Suspect Hostile
From their "Honor, Valor, Pride" CD

Through the ages
As tensions rise
All hostile and unknown
Witnessing demise

When lives are worthless
Under friendly fire
Suspected hostile
Target acquired

Attained tac - recon - regain misuse
Spying eyes - reap the truth
Evolution proficiency
Air track engagement futility
Visual angle - 12 rad of ark
Filling scores - symbols coming dark

No defiance - gather in all prey
Track rapid fire - impact point displayed
Hostile target verified
Positiob traced - you cannot hide
Mass destruct - initiate the cause
Range within low flight - acquisition within war

All tributaries - ballistics in disruption
Confirmed kills integrity - N.C.T.R. corruption
Escape is to evade

Rancor empowers
It’s creation sets the trap
In vertical dimensions
New lightning wars to which man will
Bridge the gap





No Guts, No glory
From Mercenary CD.

All senses
Under attack
Oblivion
Penultimate
Anticipation
Fills your soul
At the limit
Beyond control

The last advance
One final chance
It now shall be... no guts, no glory

Retaliation
Sequencially inclined
No guts, no glory
You decide

The last advance
One final chance
It now shall be... no guts, no glory

Swallow no pride, strength from inside
Still driving on, second to none

The last advance
One final chance
It now shall be... no guts, no glory

The last advance
One final chance
It now shall be... no guts, no glory


For Victory
From the For Victory CD

As daylight returns
The fires of hope still burn
Crawl through darkened light
Sickened by the mournful sight
Tears fall from eyes
Not sure what has been done
Sorrow creeps throughout my soul
All is lost, none have won

The battle smoke remains
Begin to feel the pain
Alone now stagger on
Unsure how it begun
Through time war previals
Thoughts fears cast aside
Face the consequence alone
With honour - valour - pride

As fire fills the sky
We once believed in life
Now time to die
...For Victory

Now in deaths glory
Mans final destiny
The final price to pay
...For Victory

"They shall not grow old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condem.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them."
"We will remember them"

No Holds Barred - Sir Mixalot

I am not one for rap, but this one has a message I can actually relate to.


If yur' gonna post it, give em' a link to the lyrics. Best theme song if I'd ever heard it....



"The police, urge people, to keep their guns locked up and unloaded"
"Congress today, seems on the verge of approving gun control"

[Verse One: Sir Mix-A-Lot]
It's, time to fight back cause the new jack black macks
ain't did ???? about that, whack, jackin
And I'm packin
Cause I'm down for the bank I'm stackin
And in a straight up brawl I'll mall alla y'all
Ya try to crawl for Tylenol and I install
big fists in your face, the blow is well placed
Spray 'em with mace in case mace is his taste
Throw up the dogs, the competition is fogged
Cause he was smokin the yang, iced and drink the 8-ball
Drunk, stumblin, threw him with the lean
I sweep him, then attack the spleen
Play the congas on his backbone
He's funk baritone until I twisted his dome
Creep up on my house and try to roll me up?
And got STUCK IN THE GUT with a black, glock
And he starts to wobble
Self-defense is what I'm claimin, let's squabble
I pick up a pipe to take plenty of quick swipes
One grazed his dome and sliced his eye whites
I don't give a DAMN bout a stupid ass burgular
It's all circular
The dope dealer sells dope to the dope smoker
The smoker breaks in and tries to choke ya
But I ain't the one to run from ya son
This is MY HOUSE, and it's FULLA GUNS!
I'm down for mine and my choke is nice and hard
When you jack the boss there ain't no holds barred!

No holds barred
No holds barred
No holds barred

[Verse Two: Sir Mix-A-Lot]
I'm crushin most hoods like Katie-dids(?)
I'm pleadin guilty for the damage I did
This ain't about random violence
The (?) crept into my house, ???? SILENCE
Now most punks wanna run for the stun gun
???? a stun gun, I got the big one
Forty-four mag, automatic, CHROME
Mercury-tipped bullets, melt the dome
It's the 1990's, and crack is
talkin to the criminals, ever so subliminal
Some crackhead wants Mix-A-Lot dead
A jack move instead, another fool bled

I can't cry cause my tears are nearly froze
My interior's cold, it posess my soul
I'm on the paranoid tip
And each of my socks got a clip!
When my house got robbed, a top notch job
Cops laughed while my mom just sobbed
9-1-1 only works for the rich ones
So I collect GUNS!
So step right through if you're down for the wrong move
Most crews are moved by my twelve gauge BOOM!
How can I love when I gotta
protect my neck from a punk suspect?
Gun control - I ain't wit it
They banned the AK and any fool can STILL get it
The innocent have been beaten, bruised and scarred
But for this citizen, there ain't no holds barred

"It is an absolute infringement on my second amendment rights"
No holds barred
"When is this attack on gun owners going to end?"
No holds barred
"Education, versus restriction"

[Verse Three: Sir Mix-A-Lot]
Hypothetical situation
Gun control starts sweepin the nation
Now you got a bunch of unarmed innocent victims
Gettin ????ED by the system
Sittin at home with a butter knife, huh
Any fool could rape your wife
So what's up when the criminals can't be stopped?
The only one with guns are the COPS
But it's hard for a brother to trust police
Huh, so the ???? don't cease
So I go downtown to buy a hot gun
I hated criminals, and now I'm one
Because I bought a gat to protect my house
The cops wanna bust me out?
So it's illegal to protect yourself?
Hell, you either get killed, or you in jail
So when you vote
You better think about what I just wrote
And ???? writin a note to yo' Congressman!
You got the fool hired
Now help get the fool fired
A scary scenario
And I put it in your stereo
So when a fool tries to run up on my car
R.I.P., no holds barred

No holds barred

No holds barred

"They take aim, at the law abiding citizen, instead of the criminal"
