Lee Harvey Was a Friend of Mine (Bennison/Cotton) I was born in Dallas in 1952, Lee Harvey moved across the street on Bentley Avenue, He used to throw the ball to me when I was just a kid, They say he shot the president---I don't think he did. Cho: And Lee Harvey was a friend of mine, He used to take me fishing all the time, He used to throw the ball to me when I was just a kid, They say he shot yhe president but I don't think he did. I've seen them pictures of him with the family and a gun, Shadows were pointin' every-which-a-way; 'Twas only just for fun, Someone faked those photos; that's not the way it is, They say he shot the president; I don't think he did. I seen it on the TV when Lee Harvey got gunned down, Murdered by Jack Ruby---the biggest sleaze in town, He stuck that gun into his ribs; Says, "Here's lookin' at you, kid, Ruby killed Lee Harvey---TV proved he did!! as sung by T.Texas Edwards and the Sickoids Found this song on a red vinyl, 7-inch, 331/3 rpm record.
