We’ll be there! Bidding to get on the crowded list of opening acts.  We especially practiced, that great old Cole Porter show tune Don’t fence me in. Here’s  what Wikipedia says about it:

Originally written in 1934 for Adios, Argentina, an unproduced 20th Century Fox film musical, “Don’t Fence Me In” was based on text by a poet and engineer with the Department of Highways in Helena, Montana, Robert (Bob) Fletcher. Cole Porter, who had been asked to write a cowboy song for the 20th Century Fox musical, bought the poem from Fletcher for $250. 

Oh, and put your sad pants on for Desparado.
