[Curly]
Poor Jud is dead
Poor Jud Fry is dead
All gather round his coffin now and cry
He had a heart of gold
And he wasn't very old
Oh why did such a feller have to die?

Poor Jud is dead
Poor Jud Fry is dead
He's lookin' oh so peaceful and serene ([Jud] and serene)
He's all laid out to rest
With his hands acrost his chest
His fingernails have never been so clean

[spoken]
Then the preacher'd get up and he'd say
"Folks, we are gathered here to mourn and groan over our brother Jud Fry
Who hung hisself up by a rope in the smokehouse"
And then there'd be weepin' an' wailin' --- from some of those women ---
Then he'd say, "Jud was the most misunderstood man in this territory
People used to think he was a mean ugly fella and called him a dirty skunk
and an ornery pig stealer
[Jud gives him a dirty look]
But

[sung]
The folks that really knowed him
Knowed that beneath them two dirty shirts he always wore
There beat a heart as big as all outdoors ([Jud] as big as all outdoors)
Jud Fry loved his fellow man ([Jud] he loved his fellow man)

[spoken]
He loved the birds of the forest
And the beasts of the fields
He loved the mice and the vermin in the barn
And he treated the rats like equals (which was right)
He loved all the little children
He loved everything and everybody in the world
Only . . . only he never let on
And nobody ever knowed it

[sung]
Poor Jud is dead
Poor Jud Fry is dead
His friends are weepin' wail for miles around ([Jud] miles around)
The daisies in the dell
Will give out a different smell
Because poor Jud is underneath the ground

[Jud]
Poor Jud is dead
A candle lights his head
He's layin' in a coffin made of wood ([Curly] wood)
And folks are feelin' sad
'Cuz they used to treat him bad
And now they know their friend has gone for good ([Curly] good)

[Both]
Poor Jud is dead
A candle lights his head
[Curly]
He's lookin' oh so purty and so nice
He looks like he's asleep
It's a shame that he won't keep
But it's summer and we're runnin' out a' ice

[Both]
Poooooor Juuuuuuud
Poooooor Juuuuuuud

Freddie's dead
That's what I said
Let the man rap a plan
Said he'd see him home
But his hope was a rope
And he should've known

Everybody's misused him
Ripped him up and abused him
Another junkie plan
Pushing dope for the man
A terrible blow
But that's how it goes
A Freddie's on the corner now
If you want to be a junkie, wow
Remember Freddie's dead

We're all built up with progress
But sometimes I must confess
We can deal with rockets and dreams
But reality, what does it mean
Ain't nothing said
'Cause Freddie's dead

Hey, hey
Love, love
Ha, ha
Love, love
Yeah, yeah
Ha, ha
Love, love
Freddie's dead

All I want is some peace of mind
With a little love I'm trying to find
This could be such a beautiful world
With a wonderful girl
Why I need a woman child
Don't want to be like Freddie now
'Cause Freddie's dead

Everybody's misused him
Ripped him up and abused him
Another junkie plan
Pushing dope for the man
A Freddie's on the corner now
If you want to be a junkie, why
Remember Freddie's dead
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Freddie's dead

Calamity Jane's Letter to her Daughter

"Your mother works for a living.
One day I have chickens, and the next day feathers."

"These days I'm driving a stagecoach.
For a while, I worked in Russell's saloon
but when I worked there all the virtuous women
planned to run me out of town,
so these days, I'm driving a stagecoach."

"I'll be leaving soon to join Bill Cody's Wild West Show.
I'll ride a horse bare-back,
standing up, shoot my old Stetson hat
twice - throwing it into the air -
and landing on my head."

"These are hectic days - like hell let out for noon.
I mind my own business, but remember
the one thing the world hates is a woman
who minds her own business."

"All the virtuous women
have bastards and shot-gun weddings.
I have nursed them through childbirth and
my only pay is a kick in the pants when my back is turned.
These other women are pot bellied, hairy legged
and look like something the cat dragged in.
I wish I had the power to damn their souls to hell!
Your mother works for a living."

--Libby Larson/Calamity Jane

[Miss Kitty's full name was Kitty Russell -- coincidence Suspect ]

And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
that's all the truth I know.
In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
a lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
as long and sharp as yours.

And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
that Lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

Ticka ticka tick tock tickin off time
You can stop the clock but you can’t stop time
You can stop the cuckoo, you can stop the chime
You can stop the clock but you can’t stop time

You can’t stop the past it’s already been
You can’t stop a storm or ragin’ wind
You can’t stop the future what’s to be will be
You can’t stop the river from rushing to the sea
You can’t stop the sea from washin’ the sand
You can’t stop God from lovin’ man
