Just my spin on an incident that was all to sad but true ; with apologies to The Marshall Tucker Band.

i was shootin' pocket pool
there downtown yesterday
i looked an' saw a big ol' injun
drivin' fast away
he'd hustled all money
now i'm shorty cash
he burglarized my pickup truck
and took off with my stash

now the wind is roarin' thru my ears
with a fire down below
i'd gone and shot my nut
an' i really did explode

i stuck my .40 calibre deep down in my pants
i was sh-shakin' like i had saint vitus dance
i was locked and loaded
and squoze off one quick shot
you shouldduh seed what happened
to the nut that i shot

'cause i fired deep down in my pants
and i really got my nut
now i got an empty feelin'
deep down there in my gut

now i hope that's somethin'
that i never do again
i have only got one nut (left)
an' he is my best friend
so next time that i shoot my nut
'specially by my own hand
i hope that i don't blow him off
into the promised land

an' i'll always deeply rue the day
i shot off my right nut
i'll always have an empty feelin'
deep down in my gut
now the wind is roarin' 'tween my ears
there's a burnin' down below
i'd shot off my right nut
an' it really did explode
