* ButtMonkey: The narrator in "Deerslayer" was perhaps the biggest one in all of Ray's songs. After supposedly accidentally killing a deer that ran into his car, he decided to take it home. Turns out that it was only stunned and upon waking up, it trashed his car. To make matters worse, a pack of hunting dogs that had been chasing the deer attacked him and trapped him on top of a telephone booth. Finally, after the police he had called arrived, [[CalvaryBetrayal they arrested him]] [[MiscarriageOfJustice for having a deer out of season and was given thirty days]], during which he lost his job and his wife left him.
