Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Tucumcari (Jimmy Driftwood)
Yes it was mentioned in 'Good, Bad & Ugly' (or was it for a few dollars more?)..............Lee Van Cleef (one of the best baddie faces on screen) was buying a ticket to Tucumcari and someone said somethin like, 'Say mister, this train don't stop at Tucumcari' and old slanty eyes lowered the book he was reading, took the pipe out of his mouth and said with a seering smile 'This train'll stop at Tucumcari'....never realised the place actually there you go......tis a sad day when you learn nowt!
