"Come to think of it, everything you need to know, to live a happy and productive life, has already been written as lyrics to some banjo song somewhere.
"Don't stab your girlfriend if she decides not to marry you.
Don't take your guns to town, son; leave your guns at home.
Don't bet on the bay mare, against Stewball.
If you go down to Deep Ellum, put your money in your shoe.
Don't think twice, it's all right. (But that gives you the responsibility to DO think very carefully, once!)
And, absolutely, under no circumstances should you ever let your deal go down."

Good stuff. What were the references?
1) Banks of the Ohio
2) Don't take your guns to town
3) Molly and Tenbrooks?
4) Deep Ellum blues
5) Don't Think Twice
6) Don't Let Your Deal Go Down
