If you haven't guessed by now I pretty much have made a trilogy out of the song big iron, the trilogy follows in chronologica l order, Liberty valance, Big iron, and Ringo. That's pretty much it.

I like to Imagine this story taking place before the events of story/song big iron and Ringo.

Another Burt Bacharach-Ha l David song, Pilgrim. I think Gene had to arm wrestle Dionne Warwick for it.

hanging wasn't good enough for those morons...ins t e a d they played 'Honey, My Gun Won't Fire'...what kind of crap was that?...

Wow, what a great jog to the memory. Gotta hear more Gene Pitney. It's a hanging crime this song wasn't in the movie.

'give me liberty or give me death'...for Liberty Vance, death was your only liberty...un t i l he ran into the Duke of Wayne (Wayne is an English estate in Cornwall...I think)...ins t e a d of the typical gunfight in the Western street...the y choose to have a joust...the Duke unseated Vance and then 'taunted' him...which drew a 15 yard penalty (hey, you do know that today is Super Bowl Sunday)...st i l l , the Duke kicked the extra point, and Vance as well, drawing another penalty flag..JayDuk e of Cornball

alright Duke...do you have a license for that six-shooter? ? ? no... you're just going to have to mosey over to the Sherriffs office and fill out the forms...in triplicate.. . w a i t seven days...then shoot the bad guys...'What the hell happened to the Old West???

Too bad they did nit use this tune in the movie of the same name. It was aclassic John Ford Western.
