Default Invitation to the Devil

Almost 7 years ago I challenged the devil to a match and rewrote this song as the theme song . I am getting older , so while I can still see somewhat I offer one more challenge to the Devil .
How about a friendly shoot ?



Some of you may remember we talked about a blackpowder shoot. Hopefully those of you that were interested in coming are still willing. If so we need to set an exact date and plan some of the events.
In the meantime I wrote a theme song. Goes like this:

"Devil Goes to South Dakota"
The devil went up to south dakota
he was looking for a shooting match to steal
He was in a bind cause his blog was way behind
he was willing to make a deal

When he came across this ol man loading his knight
and loading it hot
and the devil jumped upon a haybale and said :
ol man let me tell you what
I bet you didn't know it but i shoot blackpowder too
and if you care to take a dare
I'll make a bet with you


now you shoot pretty good ol man but give the devil his due
I bet a cva made of gold against your knight
cause i think I'm better than you

the ol man said my names weasel and it might be a sin
but I'll take your bet, your gonna regret
cause a Knight is the best that's ever been

weasel load that smokepole and you better shoot hard
cos hells broke loose in South Dakota
and the devil deals the cards
and if you win you get this shiny Accura made of gold
But if you lose the devil takes your Knight
and says I told you so

The devil opened up his gun case and said I'll start this show
and fire flew from his fingertips as he loaded that smokepole
and when he pulled the ramrod from the barrel it made an evil hiss
then a band of cva groupies chimed in "he can't miss,
he can't miss"

when the smoke cleared ol weasel said
your'e a pretty good shot there son
but sit right down in the prairie grass and let me show you how it's done


you're playing with fire on the prairie ,run boys run
the devil showed up before the rising of the sun
pyrodex in the flashpan ready to go
weasel is the recoil bad
no devil no

It was midday when the smoke cleared
and they headed back to eat
as they layed them targets on the ground
the devil bowed his head, he knew he'd been beat
he laid that golden cva at weasels feet

weasel said 'devil come back if ever you wanna try again
I told you once you son of a gun
Knights the best that's ever been


and he was playing with fire on the prairie
run boys run
devil showed up before the rising of the sun
pyrodex in the flashpan ready to go
weasel is the recoil bad
no devil no

So highly did he rate vaccination as a means of avoiding or modifying smallpox he was instrumental in appointing Dr Jenner as physician extraordinary to King George IV.
