    I was listening to the radio today on my way to pick up my wife at work. This song came on and it got me to thinking. I truly believe that this song was done will no ill will towards gun owners and guns in general, but are some songs with gun themes targeting guns and ownership?

    Oh, by the way; Bubba used a Colt .45 and stopped the jukebox with one shot. Now, was it .45ACP or .45LC? :D

    Here are a couple of songs that I thought of while waiting on my wife. I am sure there are lots others.

    Saturday Night Special
    The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia

    Janie's Got A Gun

    "...Janie's Got A Gun
    Janie's Got A Gun
    Her whole world's come undone
    From lookin' straight at the sun
    What did her daddy do
    What did he put you through

    They say when Janie was arrested
    They found him underneath a train
    But man, he had it comin'
    Now that Janie's Got A Gun
    She ain't never gonna be the same

    Janie's Got A Gun
    Janie's Got A Gun
    Her dog day's just begun
    Now everybody is on the run...."

    "Bubba Shot The Jukebox"

    My wife and I were at the NRA National Convention in Dallas in 1996.
    For the "Entertainment Night", they had booked Mark Chesnutt, with
    Toby Keith as the "opener".
    Toby was good, but as I looked around the audience I realized there
    were a lot of "foreigners" here in Texas who may not appreciate our
    good old country music.:uhoh:
    Mark Chesnutt opened his set with "Bubba Shot the Jukebox".
    At the end of the song there was just a smattering of applause, with a lot of whispering, and as I looked around, a lot of questions on peoples' faces.
    I imagined the most asked question was "Who in the heck hired THIS guy?":eek:

    "The Wreckless Discharge of a gun...that's what the officers are claiming...

    Bubba hollared, wreckless H3LL, I hit just where I was aiming....

    Bubba shot the jukebox last night...said it played a sad song and made him cry"

    I love that song:)

    you obviously haven't heard "BEER, BAIT, AND AMMO" by Mark Chesnutt.

    mark chestnutt is a gun loving fool from Texas. i saw him at a small concert last month. he'd just got back from deer hunting in Alabama. when he sang the bubba song the crowd cheered louder than any other. :) he said he tried to release beer, bait, and ammo before, but his prior label didn't condone songs like that, so he ditched them and released it on his latest album.

    hellinpetticoats, Do you have Michael Martin Murhpy's album called "Rhymes of the Renegades"? I've listened to my copy a lot of times, but lately I seem to have misplaced it... but then, I'm about the only one in my family who likes old cowboy and gunfighter songs.:D

    you raise an interesting question. Similarly, which is Bosephue thinking of to avenge his friend's death in A Country Boy Can Survive?
    Strangely, I heard Bubba yesterday too.

    The Devil's Right Hand

    :barf: Steve Earle :barf:

    Saw him perform at the Green River Festival last July. Haven't played a single one of his songs since that day. Damn socialist (despite the libertarian slant of much of his music).

    Hey Steve :biteme:

    hellinpetticoats,

    Michael Martin Murphy is one of my favorites as are all of the songs you mentioned. I especially like Belle Star. The one he does about Frank James, on the night he thinks he will die of old age, brings tears everytime I hear it.

    "Tonight I can hear Jesse callin
    Tonight we will ride once again
    I believe I have seen my last sunset
    I believe I have jumped my last train"

    "Wait up Jesse, wait for me, Jesse, I'm comin' Jesse"

    A couple of years ago, a friend of mine said that no one does "cowboy songs" anymore.

    I looked at him and asked if he ever heard of Michael Martin Murphy, The Sons of the San Jaquin or Riders in the Sky? I made him happy again.

    "a friend of mine said that no one does "cowboy songs" anymore"

    A local radio station (95.3 the range) plays lots of old and new cowboy music. They are more of what you would call an edge country station. You hear a lot of artist that you will not hear on the pop country stations.
