A song I wrote

I keep telling people who doubt me that this blog is "no brag, just fact" (and I'll award a trivia prize to anyone who can tell me where THAT quote came from) and everything I write is true. I may embellish, but I don't invent. My life NEEDS no invention to be really entertaining. I have a novel in me just waiting to come out one of these days.

Unfortunately for me, I think the abcessed tooth will get me before the inspiration to write a novel does.

Anyway, this guy wrote a post soliciting song lyrics. I pondered about sending him lyrics he's never heard before, because I wrote them, but I decided not to. I decided to publish them HERE!

These are the words to the Acidman theme song. It's played out of the key of "D" followed by "G" and "A", and has only one modulation to Bm on the chorus. I believe that any musician worth his salt could pick it up and run with it after just a sample.

It goes like this:

They say I started raisiní hell
When I was but a child
As soon as I gave up my Mamaís breast
I started running wild
I was the only boy in the second grade
Who could honestly say that heíd been laid
Cause there ainít never been no moss growing on me.

They gave me up for lost at home
When I was barely ten
So I hopped aboard a Southbound freight
And I ainít looked back again
That was how I set the stage
For a hoboís life at a tender age
And there ainít never been no moss growing on me.

Chorus:
I ainít got a trace of virtue, but I surely love my vice
Iíve got me a way with the ladies and a hot hand on the dice
Iím the highest form of low degree
A menace to society
But there ainít never been no moss growing on me.

Some folks say Iím a crazy man
But I donít give a damn
Iíve done my share of low-down deeds
But Iím proud of what I am
A self-made case of awful mean
The sorriest sight youíve ever seen
But there ainít never been no moss growing on me

You'll never hear that one on Top 40 radio, but it goes over well in bars.

Quote from "The Guns of Will Sonnet"

more specifically, Walter Brennan AS Will Sonnet....

I thought Walter Brennan was searching for his son Will. Following the path of Will's Guns.

I could be wrong, but I was thinking that Brennan was Will, and he was talking to someone about his grandson being a fast gun, and that boy's daddy being faster. And then he ends it with, "and I'm faster than both of them. No brag, just fact".

At least I think I remember it that way...

If you think it was Walter Brennan, you are way
too young. It came from Wallace Beery in (I
think) Home in Wyoming... when the villain told
him to "go for his gun" and Wallace replied,
"Plenty of time, after you go for your'n." (Old
Wallace wore his gun shoved down the front of his
pants, the property dept.being out of holsters
just then.)

Got-DAMN! I am amazed! Walter Brennan in "The Guns of Will Sonnet." But HE was Will Sonnett, teaching his grandson to be a gunfighter. My grandfather taught me to be a good shot.

Same difference, isn't it?

The Sons of Will Sonnet. Not Guns. Sons.....

I would have sworn it was Dizzy Dean on the radio. Guess he picked it up from Will Sonnet. Dizzy said it frequently in his baseball commentary. MOF, so did my husband! LOL

lead in of show , We search for a man named Jim Sonnet .The legends folks say may be true. Some call him gunman and killer. He was my son who I hardly knew . I raised jim's boy from the cradle, till the day he said "I gotta go find my father" .So I reckoned that's how it should be. So we ride Jim' s boy and me.

Bigotry isn't either: when a drunk man with a bottle of beer approaches you and your fiance on the street, after you've had a nice walk/sit by the river with many many kisses and dreams...you should calmly call the police and allow the misguided unaborted bag of shit to overhear your asking the police for help. The result will be that the harasser will sover up quickly and walk the other way, and your fiance will think you his hero.
