Pistol Packin' Mama
Gene Vincent Lyrics


Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, drinkin' beer in a cabaret
Was I havin' fun!
Until one night she caught me right
And now I'm on the run
Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama
Lay that thing down before it goes off and hurts somebody!

Oh, she kicked out my windshield
And she hit me over the head
She cussed and cried and said I lied
And she wished that I was dead

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama
Lay that pistol down

Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama
Lay that pistol down

Pappy made a batch of corn
The revenuers came
The draught was slow
So now they know
You can't do that to Mame

Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, singing songs in a cabaret
Was I havin' fun!
Until one night it didn't seem right
And now I'm on the run

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packin' mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, pistol packin' mama
Lay that pistol down

The Beatles met Gene Vincent & going back to his hotel Gene pulled a gun out of the drawer & immediately the Beatles said 'We gotta go Gene!" Later in 1968 in a hotel in Germany, Vincent tried to shoot Gary Glitter. He fired several shots but missed and a frightened Glitter left the country the next day.

Johnny Plunkett

Technically he was Paul Raven or some other name in 1968? If Gene had only lived a few more years to become a glam rocker.

On this day in 1960 {February 1st} Gene Vincent began an six day engagement* at the Empire Theater in Glasgow, Scotland...
Just under six weeks later on March 13th his "My Heart" would enter the United Kingdom's Top 40 chart at #16, and that would also be its peak position on the chart...
Later in 1960 his "Pistol Packin' Mama" would reached #15 on the U.K. singles chart...
Sadly, Gene Vincent passed away on October 12th, 1971 at the young age of 36 {a ruptured stomach ulcer}...
* Also appearing would be another American rocker, Eddie Cochran...
