    @gonzobuc1 CBS controlled by the government? Considering the last 2 and a half years, I would believe that.

    I watched the show during those days. I was a just a kid, so the political stuff got by me. I watched the reruns 25 years later and understood why they were canned. They were funny when they were just being funny. They were entertaining. They had a unique act. But when they got political and let their progressive side show, they were irritating. TV shows were driven by viewers in those days. If viewers didn’t like what they were seeing, a show got canned.

    Man, these guys are absolutely hilarious. Comedy, for the most part these days, just doesn’t have what this has anymore.

    It’s amazing thought provoking shows get canned because they speak against war and racism, but we are allowed to watch trash like Jersey Shore and Real Housewives. Art is so dead.

    Its quite obvious that anyone who did not like this is simply not old enough to remember them.

    chords: google smothers brothers “my old man” chords
    They’re out there.

    The most interesting thing about the Smothers is that they could hold their own as folk singers. that’s what got them in front of audiences at first. After that, it was all downhill into the morass of Sibling revelry. What a wonderfully original act….

  15. JustinWomackMusic says:

    Has anybody got the chords for this one? I can’t seem to find them anywhere…

    One of the best shows on TV at that time and they kept getting shut down. Things are so different now. I didn’t know anyone who was offended by anything they said and there was no foul language. Still love them – I hope they live to be 100.
