Custer Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: Bitter Tears (Ballads Of The American Indian)

Now I will tell you buster that I ain't a fan of Custer
And the General he don't ride well anymore
To some he was a hero but to me his score was zero
And the General he don't ride well anymore
Now Custer done his fightin' without too much excitin'
And the General he don't ride well anymore
General Custer come in pumpin' when the men were out a huntin'
But the General he don't ride well anymore
With victories he was swimmin' he killed children dogs and women
But the General he don't ride well anymore
Crazy Horse sent out the call just to Sitting Bull and Gall
And the General he don't ride well anymore
Now Custer split his men well he won't do that again
Cause the General he don't ride well anymore
Twelve thousand warriors waited they were unanticipated
And the General he don't ride well anymore
It's not called an Indian victory but a bloody massacre
And the General he don't ride well anymore
There might have been more enthusin' if us Indians had been losin'
But the General he don't ride well anymore
General George A.Custer oh his yellow hair had lustre
But the General he don't ride well anymore
For now the General's silent he got bombarded violent
And the General he don't ride well anymore
Oh the General he don't ride well anymore

EVERY CASH LYRIC SITE I GO TO HAS THE SAME WRONG 3RD LAST LINE.....For now the General's silent he got bombarded violent.

HE CERTAINLY DOESN'T SAY THESE WORDS AT ALL, I'M STILL SEARCHING FOR THE PROPER LINE HERE. CASH SEEMS TO BE SAYING "FOR NOW THE GENERAL SOLACE, HE'S GOT BARBER " SOMETHING OR OTHER. SOMETHING TO DO WITH SCALPING?

It's pretty clearly:

For now the General's silent he got barbered violent

So yeah, the one word is wrong, but the rest is right. At least the version I just heard was crystal clear on those words.

The words are "he got barbered violent"
by JR on 7/8/2011 3:19am
correct the word is barbered. As in he got his hair cut violent.

"He got barbered VIOLENT". Meaning dude got scalped.

In reality Custer's body was found two days later by the reinforcements unmutilated. His and one other, but they do not know why. Bullet wound in his left temple.
