Happy Birthday, Hank! If Pat Garrett hadn't shot you down in Ft. Sumner, NM 133 years ago you'd probably be on Mudcat under your assumed name of "Billy the Kid") -- and who better to sing the ballad?

I always loved Billy the Kid. My favourite since I was four years old.

You see what a change in name can do for you.

If you had written a thread called Billy the Kid, they would be cutting each other throats to get aboard.

Would Copland have written his ballet, all those folksingers sung ballads; Kris Kristofferson, Val Kilmer, Paul Newman, Robert Taylor and dozens of others tried to perform and write and capture the zeitgeist of henry McCarty.

No they'd have written on toilet walls

henry McCarty
Is very farty

and that would be it!
