The Lyrics

Everyone loves Festus from "Gunsmoke"!!! I never watched the series that much back in the day, so I stuck to the basics for this parody... hope you guys like it :)
No, no, no, no
No more beer for Festus

No, no, no, no
No more beer for Festus

Festus!
(at the) Long Branch
Festus!
(at the) Long Branch
Festus!
(at the) Long Branch
Festus!
HAGGEN

A newcomer to Dodge City
Becomes Marshall Matt Dillon’s Deputy
A trapper who couldn’t read, but was brave
Once served in the Confederate Army

He came to town, came to town, town
Now known all around, known all around

[Chorus]
Can be a Drunken Fool, still loyal to “Math-HEW”
But no more beer for Festus, (Miss) Kitty
Can be a Drunken Fool, still loyal to “Math-HEW”
But no more beer for Festus, (Miss) Kitty

No, no, no, no
No more beer for Festus

No, no, no, no
No more beer for Festus

Festus!
(at the) Long Branch
Festus!
(at the) Long Branch
Festus!
(at the) Long Branch
Festus!
HAGGEN

Walks around town lookin’ so dirty
Most proper folk just move out of his way
He loves to argue with Doc Adams
Even with a poor vocabulary!

He came to town, came to town, town
Now known all around, known all around

Can be a Drunken Fool, still loyal to “Math-HEW”
But no more beer for Festus, (Miss) Kitty
Can be a Drunken Fool, still loyal to “Math-HEW”
But no more beer for Festus, (Miss) Kitty

No, no, no, no
No more beer for Festus

No, no, no, no
No more beer for Festus

[Bridge]
In the most cultural sense,
He is beyond acceptance
Chew spitter, pitiful wretch, covered in grime
No, it doesn’t make much sense
But he has a keen sixth sense
Festus, finds the evidence,
Makes arrests, helps to stop crime

Everyone loves you,
Seems when sober there’s nothin’ you can’t do
Long Branch you can‘t refuse,
Alcohol is the vice you stick to
You stick to

Can be a Drunken Fool, still loyal to “Math-HEW”
But no more beer for Festus, (Miss) Kitty
Can be a Drunken Fool, still loyal to “Math-HEW”
But no more beer for Festus, (Miss) Kitty

No, no, no, no
No more beer for Festus

No, no, no, no
No more beer for Festus

Festus!
(at the) Long Branch
Festus!
(at the) Long Branch
Festus!
(at the) Long Branch
Festus!
HAGGEN

He’s an ornery ole scudder!!!

Golly Bill!!!

Outstanding Festus tribute!

Thanks guys! Westerns are not best subject but AFW might be interested to know that I do plan to do a parody about the German western Old Shatterhand and Winnetou by Karl May. His works are excellent but expensive!!! The Fuhrer loved American Westerns as well as May's books :)

You really brought him to life in this parody!

When I was a kid this show was on all the time. My parents loved it, but I just watched some episodes here and there. My favorite character was Festus b/c of his crude appearance and poor vocabulary! I just thought up this parody while trying to rhyme "Judas". I never plan to write anything per day... topics just come to me :)
