Cows With Guns (original tape)
by Dana Lyons
Description: "The original album released in 1996. Cows With Guns (the original album) has some of Dana's most loved songs on it. Besides the militant bovine tune Cows With Guns, it contains anthems My Country and Prayer for this Land. Willie Says, a song about a Lummi Indian elder, is one of Dana's most covered songs (sung by others).
Review(s): "Cows With Guns is one of the best humor-with-a-point songs I've heard since the days of Tom Lehrer. Perfectly paced, wonderfully witty, carefully self-aware (Bad cow pun), and carrying a serious message wrapped in gentle and imaginative humor. Nicely done, Mr. Lyons -- and I'm glad to know that the chickens in choppers are on our side. --Rik Myslewski, San Francisco
