Oi! Just to put in my two Aussie cents worth, here's a bit of one of my favorite songs. Thought it would be even more applicable given the one bloke's signature pic:

Hey porter! Hey porter!
Would you tell me the time?
How much longer will it be till we cross
that Mason Dixon Line?
At daylight would ya tell that engineer
to slow it down?
Or better still, just stop the train,
Cause I wanna look around.

Hey porter! Hey porter!
What time did ya say?
How much longer will it be till I can
see the light of day?
When we hit Dixie will you tell that engineer
to ring his bell?
And ask everybody that ain't asleep
to stand right up and yell.

Hey porter! Hey porter!
It's getting light outside.
This old train is puffin' smoke,
and I have to strain my eyes.
But ask that engineer if he will
blow his whistle please.
Cause I smell frost on cotton leaves
and I feel that Southern breeze.

Hey porter! Hey porter!
Please get my bags for me.
I need nobody to tell me now
that we're in Tennessee.
Go tell that engineer to make that
lonesome whistle scream,
We're not so far from home
so take it easy on the steam.

Hey porter! Hey porter!
Please open up the door.
When they stop the train I'm gonna get off first
Cause I can't wait no more.
Tell that engineer I said thanks alot,
and I didn't mind the fare.
I'm gonna set my feet on Southern soil
and breathe that Southern air.

:) Cheers Mates.

AVB, there are some things that just oughta be knowns. Any bloke that doesn't know a JC song when he hears/sees/reads it, is not someone I wanna waste time explainin' things to. :sign:

Besides, I thought I was at least throwin' a bone when I made mention of the signature pic of JC.

Cheers mate.

Civil War? Wasn't nothin' civil about it. It was actually THE WAR OF NORTHERN AGGRESSION.

So since we're quoting lyrics by The Man In Black, here's one of my favorites:

Now I will tell you buster that I ain't a fan of Custer
And the General he don't ride well anymore
To some he was a hero but to me his score was zero
And the General he don't ride well anymore
Now Custer done his fightin' without too much excitin'
And the General he don't ride well anymore
General Custer come in pumpin' when the men were out a huntin'
But the General he don't ride well anymore
With victories he was swimmin' he killed children dogs and women
But the General he don't ride well anymore

Crazy Horse sent out the call just to Sitting Bull and Gall
And the General he don't ride well anymore
Now Custer split his men well he won't do that again
Cause the General he don't ride well anymore
Twelve thousand warriors waited they were unanticipated
And the General he don't ride well anymore
It's not called an Indian victory but a bloody massacre
And the General he don't ride well anymore

There might have been more enthusing' if us Indians had been losin'
But the General he don't ride well anymore
General George A. Custer oh his yellow hair had luster
But the General he don't ride well anymore
For now the General's silent he got bombarded violent
And the General he don't ride well anymore
Oh the General he don't ride well anymore

;)
