Shimbo Darktree Lyr Req: Ballad of Cat Ballou (27) RE: Lyr Req: Ballad of Cat Ballou 29 Dec 12

Ferret ... I have done this research recently for a theme night at a folk club. Now, now ... don't start on the "what is folk" track - it won't help. I combined movie words with the released song, and inserted a verse of my own where I thought it provided continuity which you could otherwise only get from the movie.

The fifth line of the first verse may be " ... Professor Sam the Shade ..." - don't ask me what it means!

Verse six, last line - "steel-eyed Kid Sheleen"?

This is getting too hard. I don't feel justified in posting all my words, because it is a mixture. But if anyone wants them, let me know at and I'll send them by return.
