About The The Song:

In early 1975 when Pete started to write songs again, he often recorded his new songs directly into an inexpensive cassette recorder. Many of his lyrics related to his current woes. "Smoking Gun" is about a villain named Will Parker who carried a smoking gun and the innocent Johnny, who "played the game". In the end "Old Will shot his just the same".

Another unfinished song from Pete. Nice melody, nice rhymes. No doubt that this song could have been developed into a great track.
