Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: I Gotta Find a Woman with a Chainsaw
Subject: RE: I Gotta Find a Woman with a Chainsaw
I can't sing the line "Mendocino Thunder F**k." I'm an addictions counselor by trade and I'm not anti-drug, but I try to avoid "glorifying" drug use.

My substitute is:
"I've got a cabin in the mountains, a Chevy pick-up truck,
With stereo and 4 - Wheel drive to pull us through the muck."

My friend Sue Trainor, currently in the trio "Hot Soup", has put a lot of miles on this song as well. She, too, has altered the line (although I don't remember her words).   I've been accused of stealing this song from her, but I know for a fact we both learned it from a gift tape sent to us by a mutual friend.
