:wub: it!

 

Also, Frederick Jackson Turner has written a song, I love, about SASS for his group Big Red Sky. It is really funny as it has parts about the excuses for misses and Ps. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name and didn't find it using Google..

 

Can someone help me with a link?

 

Regards,

 

Allie

great tune and words

 

reminds me of Marty Robbins and "Big Gun on his Hip"

Big Iron, actually.

 

A couple of years ago, we had a costume day where I work. I wore my SASS duds. They said anyone who was brave enough to pick up the microphone and sing would get a free lunch. Guess which song I belted out!

Cover of the Cowboy Chronicle

 

Apologies to Dr Hook. Sung to the tune of "Cover Of The Rolling Stone"

By Rolan Kraps

Well we’re Cowboy Action Shooters
We’re SASS’s best Recruiters.
People say we’re strange everywhere we go.
We shoot at steel targets and we shoot at clay birds
and spend ten thousand dollars on clothes.
We shoot old western guns.
To have a whole lot of fun
But the thrill I've never known
Is the thrill that'll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of the Chron-i-cle

Chorus:
Rolan Kraps! Wanna see my picture on the cover
Kraps! Wanna beg five copies for my lover.
Kraps! Wanna see my smiling face.
On the Cover of the Chron-i-cle.

Now it’s so bewitching
That my wife Bea Itchin’
Puts up with my crazy schemes
She’s got her poor ol' grey haired Daddy
Loading her magazine
Now it's all designed
To blow our minds
But our minds won't really be blown
Like the blow that'll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover with Rolan Kraps

Chorus:
Rolan Kraps! Wanna see my picture on the cover
Kraps! Wanna beg five copies for my mother.
Kraps! Wanna see my smiling face.
On the Cover of the Chron-i-cle.

We gotta lotta young gun shooters
Who beat us on any given day
We got a genuine world champion
Who's teachin' us a better way
We got all the friends that’ll put up with us
So we never have to shoot alone
And we ain’t gettin' richer, but we can't get our picture
On the cover of the Chron-i-cle.

Chorus:
Rolan Kraps! Wanna see my picture on the cover
Kraps! Wanna beg five copies for my Lover.
Kraps! Wanna see my smiling face.
On the Cover of the Chron-i-cle.

Pretty Cool Larsen I like it, where did you find it?

It is one of those weird cyberspace things. I listen to music every night when I go to bed. This song came up a couple of weeks ago and I wondered how the heck it got on my IPod. I checked and it is on my ITunes song list. So it got downloaded from ITunes to my IPod. How it got there I am not sure. Must be something to do with the cloud or Russian hacking. :ph34r: At any rate, it is a nice tune and I thought you all might enjoy it.

Love it! I agree should be our theme song.

 

Allie, I had Frederick Jackson Turner's CD and must have loaned it and not got it back. I can't remember the name either but is a good one!

Thanks, Larsen.

 

Yes, in spite of the Chisler's chiseling ways, Jim Bowman did that song for us.

 

Unfortunately Jim never got the credit and recognition he deserved.

 

But tis a great song!

Yep, & IIRC, at the time we did only use 3 guns. But, I have to chuckle about the chorus! "...the history of the west is perhaps remembered best..."

Had the privilege to listen to that song and watch Joe Bowman twirl the six guns at a few state championships and above. My era was 2000-2007. Grand old fella.

OVER, and OVER again. We started making up our own words to it. They were not kind words.

To clarify, Joe Bowman was an top notch exhibition shooter. I don't recall how well he sang. He passed away several years ago.

 

Jim Bowman did the song.

 

They were both at the Mulecamp shoot for several years.

 

Both great guys!
