Subject: RE: The funniest song you have ever heard II
"Kinda Lonely in the Saddle Since My Horse Died"... which is actually the whole song... it's the setup and delivery, with only one strum of the strings. Don't recall who did it. Same for the next one.

"Hangman Slack That Rope" is my all-time fav and the only blues tune I ever sang... again, delivery and sincerety are the keys...

Hangman, slack that rope.

Hangman, slack that rope.

I said, hangman, hangman, hangman, hangman,

Hangman, slack that rope.

Cause there ain't gonna be no hangin today,

I said, hangman, slack that aacccchhhh!!!
