Two sad songs


Lie to me, tell me they're only robins.

Okay, so you've decided to post a video to accompany a great but fairly obscure country song from 1969 (Highest position: No. 19) - What images come to mind?

New rules

1. Never beg another man.
2. Never Trust anyone
3. Never get between a gun and its target.
4. Punches are like bullets. If you don't make the first one count,you just might be finished.
5. If you wound a man, you better kill him or sooner or later he's going to kill you.
6. The right bullet at the right time, well aimed.
7. If you untie a man, take his gun before that.
8. Don't give a man any more bullets than what he's got use for.
9. When you start killing, you can't stop it.

Happy birthday, Pete Seeger!
