“Well, anyone who knows me, knows I hate the Country Bear Jamboree.
Iâ€™m not sure why more people donâ€™t feel the same way.
When we were young, my Dad took us down to Florida to visit family and we got to spend one afternoon in Walt Disney World. The Country Bear Jamboree is one of the few memories I have of the trip, and they arenâ€™t good memories. I donâ€™t get it to this day!
Big Al singing “Blood on the Saddle“:
REALLY? Whose blood? Was Al going to hit me over the head with that guitar, throw me over his saddle and use me as a snack after the show?
Did someone die, were they murdered?
As a sensitive kid I was extremely aware of the words to that song and couldnâ€™t get it out of my mind, in fact I still canâ€™t. Were they hurt, maimed, did they get separated from their party? I still donâ€™t understand. Can someone explain that one to me?
Well, I swore up and down that no one could get me into that attraction again, but Nick dragged me in there a few years ago to relive the horror all over again. Let me just say now, itâ€™s no better now than it was back in the 70â€™s! Stay away! Those bears are out for blood and theyâ€™ll get it somehow!”
There you have it!
