Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Saturday, August 23, 2014

It rained and rained yesterday - I actually walked the pups for an hour in the drizzle. "Princess" Shalako didn't like getting her toes wet, Samurai splashed thru the puddles on purpose, and the little weasel, Spartacus, wanted to be carried for most of the walk. Anyway, it made me think of this song - "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" from the 1969 "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid".

The movie was loosely based on the real outlaw train robbers, Butch Cassidy (Robert LeRoy Parker), played by Paul Neuman, and his best buddy, Sundance Kid (Harry Longabaugh), played by Robert Redford. Butch was the leader of the Hole in the Wall Gang. Sundance's lover was a schoolteacher, Etta Place, played by Katherine Ross. After things get too hot for the guys, they decide to go to Bolivia. Not speaking Spanish, they didn't do well as robbers there, until Etta taught them the language. The movie ends in a shoot out with the Bolivian police and soldiers, in a freeze frame of them charging out into gunfire.




Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'


So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'


But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me


Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me
