Thread Name: Anyone here had to recite?
Subject: RE: Anyone here had to recite?
NOW THAT I'VE GOT THE ATTENTION of all the Mudcatters who love poems and recitation, it is probably a good time to ask again for the words to a poem I have been seeking for a long time. The poem was first mentioned in this thread. The title is "Uncle Albert's Heroic Farewell To The World", by Eddie Pickford. I heard it on the radio a long time ago, recited, I think, by Lou Killen. It's hilarious. It's about a darts game. I can't tell you much more than that without giving away the joke. It has a refrain that goes -

There's a stain on the floor of the bar room
There's a cap in the case by the door
There's a verse on a stone in the church yard
In memory of one who's no more.

Apparently there were some folks who asked for, and received the words from Lou himself, but they were sent by e-mail instead of posted to the thread. Apparently those people are no longer active members of Mudcat because they haven't replied to my e-mails either.

Anybody know where I can get the rest of the words?
