Wow I had no idea about this. How fascinating! Sent it to my dad, will see if he remembers these.

That is a wonderful story. In a way it's not so different that, say, the huge cultural fascination in late C19th and early C20th Germany in the US West.

I believe this is actually a Leonard Cohen poem.

I think the next line was "For I've touched her perfect body with my sombrero."
