Tom and Jerry can be a real hoot, sometimes...

There's an episode where Tom is dressed as a cowboy, and trying to impress a pretty little girl cat in a black hat and boots.  I thought I heard something specific, and sure enough, the song does reference a gun.

I love old cartoons.  They don't sacrifice the funny for political correct.



lyrics are below

I was ridin' down the trail from Santa Fe
When I met a purty gal along the way
I said "Ain't we met before"
Then she drew her forty-four*
So I tipped my hat and slowly rode away


I was ridin' down the trail from Santa Fe
When I met another gal along the way
I said, "Baby, you're a dream
She said, "Touch me and I'll scream"
So I tipped my hat and slowly rode away

I continued down the road to Santa Fe
When I met another gal along the way
I asked "are you taken to"
She said "honey I'll take you"
So I tipped my hat and settled down  to stay !
