The Lyrics

This one's pretty lame, but I wanted to do something for Chuck. The song used is "Riders on the Storm" which Jim Morrison wrote after seeing the Charles Bronson film "Rider on the Rain". Great song and great film. The mine reference is true; he started out as a coal miner in PA.
Charles Bronson died,
Said his last goodbyes,
He started in the mines,
Became a megastar in time,
His wife Jill Ireland,
passed away so long ago,
Charles Bronson died,

Death Wish brought him fame,
(But I prefer) "Rider on the Rain"
And in "Once Upon a Time,
In the West" he really shined,
He was one of my faves,
But Chuck died just yesterday,
The coolest dude is gone,

He played good guys and bad,
Hitmen, cops, and fugitives,
He was cooler than Clint,
He shot dudes without sin,
This song is for you Chuck,
Though noone else here gives a ----
But I love ya man, yeah

Charles Bronson, king of cool,
If you don't like him you're a fool,
In 10 to Midnight he's a cop,
Who blew away some crazy sop,
When his wife Jill was gone
(He was) an actor out alone
Rider on the Rain
Rider on the Rain
Rider on the Rain

OK, pacing's a little off, but a great tribute, nonetheless. Death Wish rules!
