Thread Name: YOUR Best original single lines.
Subject: RE: YOUR Best original single lines.
I once did a parody of "Home on the Range" that included:
A cowboy, for fun, might draw his six-gun,
But it's usually his foot that he shoots,
'Cause he's gone plumb insane from the terrible pain
Caused by wearin' them silly damn boots.
Check the punctuation; it's all one sentence/one line. Therefore, it appears I am using SongBob Clayton's interpretation of the thread title.
By the way, as an aside to Bob: Digging out my copy of the People's Song Book last night, I came across your book on how to play the 5-string banjo! Now I need a copy of your Master's thesis on the Washington folk scene during the McCarthy years! I read a quote from it recently. (Was it in Cantwell's book?) Are you coming to Indian Neck this weekend?
