################ Theme Song ##################
##############################################
Theme Song written by George Tibbles and Jack Elliot.

"Here's the legend about the Hanks in Pistols 'n' Petticoats.

Henrietta can fire a gun with one hand milkin' the goat.
And hit a coyote on the run in Pistols n Petticoats.

The story goes that grandma is the best
at shootin' buttons off a rustler's vest.
Shootin' buttons off a rustler's vest.

Grandpa kept his gun in trim, nobody messed around with him.
Nobody messed around with him.

Chasin' bandits was fun for them from Bristol to Tarahut.
Everyone in the west would run from Pistols 'n' Petticoats.

That's the legend about the Hanks just as she was wrote.
They kept busy protecting banks in Pistols 'n' Petticoats.
"

Re: final episode "Harold's Double"//
"I can't recall the plot much to it, but I sure know where i was when I seen
it! My family and me were stuck waiting to transfer on a dc 3,at watertown
south dakota for several hours. In that time, I wactched that episode on the
tv in the little lobby. It was a very intertaining series, and until tonight,
I did'nt know that the star Ann Sheriden passed away after only 18
episodes.. Without a doubt, her death also ment the shows death. Sure would like
to get video tapes of this series. If possible, please try to get the song
posted so Us boomers can again hear it"
