NOVEMBER 24, 1963

…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 ♫ (sung to the tune of Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town by Mel Tillis; originally made popular by Kenny Rogers) – New lyrics by ‘Guffaw’ and B. Jannuzzi)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.)

  5. First – Happy Birthday!

    Second – Ow. Now every time I see that pic that song will start in my mind. Kinda like when Ian McKellen was sitting in the Oscar audience with his hand possessively on the leg of a boy toy and my daughter quipped – “Oh, look, Gandalf the Gay.” That was soooo stuck for a while.

  6. I recall an interview with Kenny Rogers when he said that the crazy Asian war referred to was actually the Korean Conflict, and, of course, was appropriate to Viet Nam.

The Four Rules

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune

Penn Jillette

“F**k Civility. Hyperbole, passion, and metaphor are beautiful parts of rhetoric. The marketplace of ideas cannot be toned down for the insane.” - Penn Jillette
