about

This was my introduction to Webb Wilder, way back in the 70s. Still my all time favorite WW song.

lyrics

Saw an ad in the paper
Said the hell with it all
Took a gig with the circus
As the human cannonball
It didn't take long
To learn my trade
Very first show
Man, I blew the folks away
Now, the job's a little risky
But I'm my own boss
I got to tell ya, Jack
It really gets me off
I live in a tent with
The world's strongest man
When I met the mother
Like to broke my hand
My baby, she's a lady
In the high-wire act
When I'm feeling tense
She walks on my back
Now, the pay's okay
The benefits are great
I get to shoot the bull
With the world's smallest ape
Ah ha
I'm the human cannonball
I'm the human cannonball, y'all
Well I'm a hot shot
I'm a cool breeze
Underneath the big top
I'm the big cheese
I lay it on the line
Let it all hang
When I go, least I know
I'll go with a bang
I reckon I'm living
Every kid's dream
It's a buzz, it's a gas
It's a real scream
Ah ha
I'm the human cannonball
I'm the human cannonball, y'all
Yeah
Alright, folks
Just make yourself at home
Have a snow cone and enjoy the show
They put me on the cover
Of the U.S.A. Today
Tell the world what the human cannonball got to say
On the Conan show
They sayin' "HC, what you do, you got to be
Right outta your tree!"
Well, it's a little risky
But I'm my own boss
I got to tell you, Jack
It really gets me off
Ah ha
I'm the human cannonball
I'm the human cannonball, y'all
I'm the human cannonball
I'm the human cannonball, y'all

about

RS Cain Versailles, Kentucky

I'm a guitarist, singer, and songwriter from central Kentucky.
My music is a mix of many different influences; from the country and western I heard as a child to some stuff I heard yesterday.
I write songs primarily to make you shake your money maker. I'm not deep, and I'm certainly no virtuoso. I just want you to have a good time.
