Schmid, Charles--Songs about


One of the songs that was used regarding the Charles Schmid murder case was "Pied Piper" by the Changing Times.  This song first appeared in the Life magazine article, March 4, 1966 about these Tucson murders.  This article can be found on a web at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kVtIuZWfsUa9xBH5s7l_YcW8L2dr1M6TdVM1HghGxg0/edit?pli=1.   We do not have this song in the PCPL collection. 

The only lyrics we can find for the song are the beginning lines. (As mentioned in Life and the web site.):

Hey come on,
babe follow me I'm the Pied Piper,
follow me I'm the Pied Piper
And I'll show you where it's at.

The Life magazine article became the basis of a book by Don Moser and Jerry Cohen, The Pied Piper of Tucson.  We have this book in our Arizona Collection at the Main Library.

The Pima County Public Library does not have nor can we find a song about this murder case called "One Foot Sticking Out of the Grave."
