Thread Name: Lyr Req: Cool Hand Luke / Plastic Jesus
Subject: RE: Cool Hand Luke / Plastic Jesus
Johnny: Good Marine Hymn, especially to sing in a foxhole! I agree tha the song predates "Cool Hand Luke"

Thanks for the good links and chords Mr. Farris. The film review is very complete.

Blackcatter: This is a neat song and fun to sing. I enjoy using the many folk evolved verses so the song will always be fresh. Some of the verses are hilarious and not without tongue-in-cheek sacrilege. Even Darwin is not given a break. This folk song is still open to revision and my renditions include my own self-deprecating verses.

As mentioned in a related "Cool Hand Luke" thread, the melody of 'Plastic Jesus' is the same as the country song 'Oklahoma Hills'. I think the melodies are the same, do others agree?
