"Gun Sale At The Church"
The Beat Farmers
Van Go (1986)

Well let's pack up the kids and take a break, get away
Leave the hustle and bustle of living from day to day
And I know that the crime in the city is-a getting worse
So we're going on down to the gun sale at the church

Well my lady's all set to have us a real good time
Baby johnny's got fins but he don't seem to mind
So the family's all ready to pray at the holy perch
That's set up in the middle of the gun sale at the church

Well we'll ask the Lord to forgive us of all our sins
And we'll look at the latest in gold-plated firing pins
Well my two main men are Jesus and old John Birch
So we're going on down to the gun sale at the church

Great song. I saw them in Chicago a few times.

Great song, but I've always thought that it was kind of silly for a 22 year old to sing about "if whiskey doesn't kill me, I don't know what will."

Partial from Wiki...

"The Moonshiner" is a folk song with disputed origins. It is believed that the song originated in America, then later was made famous in Ireland. Others believe that it was the other way around. The Clancy Brothers stated on their recording that the song is of Irish origin, but again, this is disputed. Delia Murphy was singing it in Ireland from the late 1930s

I don't know when you started seeing Tupelo shows, but those early days at Cicero's and the first shows at Mississippi Nights everyone was really drunk so looking back it might not have been a stretch.

That AWOLNATION isn't bad but word to listeners some lyrics are NSFW.

Similarly, Modest Mouse just released a new record that's pretty decent. But talk about a dull video.

A plug for another band, CaveofswordS. They just released their second record Sigils a month or so ago. The guitarist and the bassist are first cousins of mine.

Pretty cool music. Any chance they'll be touring Denver?
