For some reason, I've been thinking about the JFK assassination this morning, and remembering a song I heard on the radio only once on or about the day of his funeral.

The chorus went something like:

Oh, the world was cold and silent on that dark November day, when a mad assassin's bullet took (blew?) that gallant heart away.

I have never heard it since, and can find no reference in DT under Kennedy, assassin, or Kennedy Assassination. Has anyone else heard this, or did I imagine it?
