Pretty Boy Floyd (1933)

The Weird Aryan History Series - Lesson #34

Pretty Boy Floyd

Now gather 'round me, children,
A story I will tell
'Bout Pretty Boy Floyd the outlaw,
Oklahoma knew him well.

It was in the town of Shawnee,
A Saturday afternoon,
His wife beside him in his wagon
As into town they rode.

Then up come a deputy sheriff,
In a manner rather rude,
Using vulgar words of language,
An' his wife she overheard.

Well, Pretty Boy grabbed a log chain,
The deputy grabbed a gun;
And in the fight that followed
He laid that deputy down.

Then he took to the trees and timber
To live a life of shame;
Every crime in Oklahoma
Was added to his name.

But a many a starving farmer
The same old story told
How the outlaw paid their mortgage
And saved their little homes.

Some tell you of a stranger
That come to beg a meal,
And underneath his napkin
He left a thousand dollar bill.

In Oklahoma City,
It was on a Christmas Day,
And taxi loads load of groceries
Come with a note to say:

"It's true that I'm an outlaw,
It's true that I'm a thief.
But here's a Christmas dinner
For the families on relief."

As through this world you ramble,
You'll meet some funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
As through your life you roam,
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.

What a great post !

He and others of our folk never received the recognition for the help they actually spread around. The establish crew has always demonized those who dare defy it.

For the record, anyone can re-post or re-print anything on here so long as it assists the racial cause in some way.

Then there were Bonnie and Clyde, who I also seem to recall stole from those responsible for the Depression and were widely known among common folk for having helped as many of the real victims of the Depression as they encountered before they were murdered by the Feds.

"In order to destroy the prestige of heroism for political crime we shall send it for trial in the category of thieving, murder, and every kind of abominable and filthy crime. Public opinion will then confuse in its conception this category of crime with the disgrace attaching to every other and will brand it with the same contempt." -- from Protocol 19, Protocols of Zion
