Custer

Now I will tell you "busters"
I'm not a fan of Custer's;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

To some he was a hero,
But to me his score was zero;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

Now George, he'd had victories,
But never massacres;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

Old George had done his fightin'
Without too much excitin'
And the general he don't ride well any more.

When the men were away at huntin'
Old Custer would come in pumpin';
And the general he don't ride well any more.

He'd kill children, dogs and women,
With victories he was swimmin';
And the general he don't ride well any more.

Now the Sioux were gettin' tired,
And their temperatures were fired;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

Crazy Horse sent out the call
For Sitting Bull and Gall;
But the general he don't ride well any more.

Twelve thousand warriors waited,
They were unanticipated;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

Thus the Little Bighorn
Massacre was born;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

The Cheyenne and the Sioux
Had quite a lot to do;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

Old Custer split his men,
Well he won't do that again
'Cause the general he don't ride well any more.

The proud 7th Cavalry,
It got plumb masscred;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

Custer made his stand
With his little band;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

But he wasn't fighting women,
The Indians left them hidden;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

Custer got eliminated
And his legend uncreated;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

It's not called an Indian victory
But a bloody massacre;
And the general he don't ride well any more.

There would have been more enthusin'
If them Indians were losing;
But the general he don't ride well any more.

General George A. Custer,
His yellow hair had lustre;
But the general he don't ride well any more.

He got bombarded violent,
And now old George is silent;
And the general he don't ride well any more.
