Schmid, Charles – Songs About

One of the songs that was used regarding the Charles Schmid murder case was "Pied Piper" by the Changin' Times.  This song first appeared in the Life magazine article, March 4, 1966 about these Tucson murders.  A Google document with the text of this article, opens a new window exists. Pima County Public Library does not have this song in the collection.  

The only lyrics we can find for the song are the beginning lines, as mentioned in Life magazine and the website:

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

A recording of Pied Piper by the Changin' Times, opens a new window is on YouTube.

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."
