The Lyrics

We caught the train a'comin'
Jumped on around the bend
Can fin'lly see the sunshine
Me and my 'Scapee friend..
Just busted out a' Folsom,
Them bloodhounds howl and moan
C'mon choo choo keep a'rollin'
On down to San Antone..

I'm set ta' meet my honey,
She's holed up for me there
Almost taste her kisses,
She's gonna' love her "Bear"
I ain't never killed no-body
But will bid them goodbye.."
If they ever try to take me
I won't go back, I'll die !

Got candy bars for munchin'
From an early mornin' bar
Some Styrofoam cup coffee
And Jim Beam in a jar..
This baggage car is crowded,
But we ain't sharin' drinks
So, scootch over, Mr. Samson-
While I grab 40 winks..

Well, I found my baby, Cindy
Way out on the edge a' town
A Motel Six, secluded,
And plumb wore out her new nightgown
Stole a car next mornin'
Headed for New Orleans
While my partner, Ed's a' drivin'
I'm stretchin' Cindy's jeans..

So, we hit a few gas stations,
Stockin' up on cash and gas
Ed gets a little nervous
When a Trooper starts to pass
We cut off at an exit,
The law man gives a chase
And we wind up on a dead end
Spotlight in our face..

I hear that Trooper barkin' orders,
But my mind's not thinkin' straight
Ed pulls out his revolver,
I fire off my Magnum eight
Have a little shoot out,
Glass shatters, feel a thud
Well, I'd like to finish this song,
But I can't stop the bloooooo.......

Kansas City, Kansas, last week an officer was escorting an dangerous sex offender to the courthouse for some sort of hearing. The cop had to use the toilet so he left this guy, wearing street clothes, not handcuffed, standing in the hallway. They caught him yesterday in Missouri, trying to register a car he had just purchased. He had somehow picked up enough money to buy a car and had three homeless men with him, preparing to drive to Kentucky. Johnny Cash did the prison concert songs so convincingly that many thought he had indeed served hard time. Which I don't believe is true. My favorite song from the Folsom Prison album is "Flushed From the Bathroom of Your Heart", which might relate to the job of that Kansas officer who let his prisoner walk away.

@ FG: No.

(see comment to AFW yesterday @
(and a reply to your stinging retort at A's other one yesterday)

AFW: You've Cashed in quite well - truly captures the flavor of TOS. ... and the ending was a nice touch, which, as far as I know, is a "first". Sentence: 555 more years -- of parody writing.
