…don’t take your gun to town! ♫ (sung to the tune of Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town by Mel Tillis; originally made popular by Kenny Rogers) – New lyrics by ‘Guffaw’ and B. Jannuzzi)
You’ve put on your sport coat and got your Colt Cobra there,
Ruby are you contemplating going out somewhere?
The shadow on the wall tells me that Oswald’s goin’ down…
Oh Ruby, don’t take your gun to town!
It wasn’t me that started that crazy Asian war,
But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chore.
And yes it’s true this isn’t the country that it used to be.
Oh, Ruby, are you controlled by the Mob and The Company?
It’s hard to love a man whose legs could be broke and paralyzed…
and the wants and needs of a man your age, Ruby I realized.
Oh Ruby, don’t take your gun to town.
He’s leaving now, ’cause I just heard the slammin’ of the door.
The way I know I’ve heard it some 100 times before.
If I could move I’d get my own gun and put Lee in the ground.
Oh Ruby, for God’s sake turn around.
The Warren Commission’s ‘Official’ answer said there was ‘no credible evidence’ Oswald and Ruby knew each other. No assassination conspiracy/coverup.
In the words of Dennis Miller, “I haven’t seen choreography like that since the Lee Harvey Oswald prison transfer!”
Dedicated to the tireless investigators, both public and private, who see the Warren Report for the
hokum, bullsh*t, disinformation it is. And to the Vietnam Veterans for whom Mel Tillis wrote the original, unbastardized song.
(BTW – Happy Birthday GUFFAW! 61 Years.)
