    Wow, I think that song was probably my favorite one out of the entire series so far... Think I'm going to learn it. Also, I think that ass was a sp fan.. Ohhh, you should have gone to Tombstone, Arizona..! The town too tough to die... :)

    Years ago went from Oregon to California. Got stopped at the border and was asked if I had any fruit. My girlfriend future wife asked if pot was a fruit. I laughed it off and said she was slow. Funny day..

    Love this song! I first heard this song on a recording of Peter & Gordon on the Hullabaloo show. My guy at the time, had recordings of all sorts of weird obscure musicians and shows dated back to the 60's. Good stuff, good times!

    Murder is super illegal even in the old wild west, so when gun duellers hesitate its only because they wait to "defend" themselves; when one goes for their gun first that is grounds to protect yourself. Fact of fun. FF.
