Righteously Wrong

Righteously Wrong? Who can forget Kris and Rita in the Peckinpah movie Pat Garret and Billy the Kid? This film is the whole package – Complete with Bob Dylan throwing knives and contributing to the amazing soundtrack. Indeed, who can forget Sam Peckinpah – and other Righteously Wrong loved outlaws of the era?

I watched this movie recently (again) It really is incredible that this film came out in 1973. It looks gorgeous, sounds amazing and most of all – It remains very watchable.

From the UK

Doug is a Kristofferson fan. We asked him to tell us a bit more about himself, and he said,

Doug McKenna: Eccentric soon to be 55 year old who likes to act, draw & sing & who admires & loves Kris Kristofferson. I’m also single & looking for an equally eccentric, artistic & Kris Kristofferson fan type lady!

Doug created this video for our group. He said that he did this for posting in our Group, in response to a friend’s post about Kris in Peckinpah’s Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia It made me smile, so I asked him if I could share it with you.

Sam’s Song – the lyrics

I have been with the best that the bastards could muster
From Danny the Dildo to Sidney the Snake
And I feel like a working girl pausing to wonder
Just how much screwin’ the spirit can take

I said, “Willie old buddy, please tell me again
The reason to keep goin’ on.”
He said, “There’s no harder words to say over a friend
Than they done you so righteously wrong –
They stopped you from singing your song”

He was our hero, boys, he took the bullet
But he went down swingin’ his fist from the floor
You can ask any working girl south of the border
Sam Peckinpah era un hombre for sure

Willie old buddy please tell me again
The reason to keep goin’ on
He said, “There’s no harder words to say over a friend
Than they done you so righteously wrong
They stopped you from singin’ your song.”

Kris Kristofferson, Donnie Fritts and Sam’s Song

Kris recently lost another close friend in Donnie Fritts. Donnie was an immensely talented man who left behind a large collection of work – He also shared the stage with Kris for around four decades on keys and in other roles.

This clip just seems very fitting.
