    It's Christmas time and nothing like a good Pidgeo nutcracker. I especially like the middle part at the 3:15 mark with the Ride of the Valkyries

    Honey, baby mine!

    Dang. It took 150 posts to get to the most played song in America. (And quite possibly the world.)

    As much as I like Johnny Winter, SRV’s cover of “Boot Hill” is better than Johnny Winter’s original. The slide is what does it for me.




    Re: Hendrix’s “Machine Gun”, does anyone here know that Jimi served in the Army? He was 101st Airborne. Not exactly a model trooper, but it did give him an unusual perspective, for a musician...

    Funny when I saw this topic the first song to my mind was "Saturday Night Special". Certainly not a pro-gun song but it's what came to mind.

    I’d rather have one and not need it, then need one and not have it. I married this glock-matic.

    May not be to all y'alls taste, but....
    a whole ton of songs by Cypress Hill are going to mention a gun at some point.

    Here we come, reach for your gun
    And you better listen well my friend, you see
    It's been slow down below,
    Aimed at you, we're the cowboys from hell
    Deed is done again, we've won
    Ain't talking no tall tales friend
    Cause high noon, your doom
    Comin' for you we're the cowboys from hell

    Just for Swamp Rat:

    Swampy was a pawn shop man
    he knew his business well
    He'd loan and buy on everything
    and once or twice he'd sell

    the man brought in a Remington
    to see what Swampy'd pay
    "just take a look down yonder bore
    I've cleaned it just today

    Swampy pulled the action back
    then pointed to the door
    I never buy form anyone when
    bullets hit the floor

    Mississippi Saturday Night

    Song by Old Crow Medicine Show


    Poor mr.?
    from up in clarksdale
    shot his brother with a pop, pop, pop
    spent 20 yrs of hard time, before he saw the light
    now he's preaching on the corner of a mississippi saturday night

    Drop by the Pawn Shop by the motel
    dream all you want, you ain't goin nowhere

    ohh ladies in the juke joint, lookin for a fight
    Hey they'll hunt you like a rabbit on a mississippi saturday night

    Oh, vicksburg, natchez down to crescent city
    gulf coast blues oh it sure is a pity
    Don't make alot of money, baby that's alright
    cuz they make alot of lovin' on a mississippi saturday night

    Oh Mr.?
    from?
    He's having coffee with your mama and your papa
    if you're messin with his daughter
    you better treat her right
    ohhh treat you like a possum on a mississippi saturday night



    Carry Me Back to Virginia.

    Song by Old Crow Medicine Show


    Well I come from the valley, I'm a rebel boy.
    Born on the banks of the Shenandoah.
    In sixty-one, I went to the war,
    To win one for Virginia!
    Ya my brother went first and they called me to.
    I was green as clover in the morning dew.
    So I marched to the drum and I sang to the tune.
    Carry me back to Virginia!

    … Fire in the cannon, water in the well,
    Raced through the valley with a rebel yell.
    I learned right quick how to march like hell and affix that bayonet.

    … Won't ya carry me back?
    Won't ya carry me back?
    Carry me back to Virginia.

    … With a sword and a saddle,
    Powder in the gun.
    We thought for a minute our fight was done.
    So they lined us up to the metals arm,
    And hammered us into the quicksand.
    Then they burned that valley in a blaze of fire, …

    My favorite is Desperado by Alice Cooper.

    I'm a gambler
    And I'm a runner
    But you knew that
    When you lay down

    I'm a picture
    Of ugly stories
    I'm a killer
    And I'm a clown

    Step into the street by sundown
    Step into your last goodbye
    You're a target just by living
    Twenty dollars will make you die

    I wear lace
    And I wear black leather
    My hands are lightning upon my gun
    My shots are clean
    And my, my shots are final
    My shots are deadly
    And when it's done

    You're as stiff as my smoking barrel
    You're as dead as a desert night
    You're a notch
    And I'm a legend
    You're at peace
    And I must hide

    Tell me where the hell I'm going
    'Let my bones fall in the dust
    Can't you hear that ghost that's calling
    As my Colt begins to rust
    In the dust

    I'm a killer
    I'm a clown
    I'm a priest
    That's gone to town

    Gave my baby a twenty dollar bill
    If that don't get her, I'm sure my shot, shot, shot-gun will
    Yeah, I gave my baby a twenty dollar bill

    Another Howlin' Wolf tune:



    It could be a spoonful of water
    Save you from the desert sand
    But one spoon of lead from my 45
    Save you from another man
