Lee Harvey Oswald

FBI face shadow test

The Oswald backyard rifle photos are considered clumsy fakes, in part because the shadows on the face don’t match anything else in the picture. The head appears to be from a photograph taken at a different time of day, pasted onto a body that is actually shorter than Oswald. The FBI made this test photo and submitted it to the Warren Commission — with the head removed — as proof that the backyard rifle photos were genuine and unmodified.

Lee Harvey was a Friend of Mine

I was born in Dallas in 1952,
Lee Harvey moved across the street on Bentley Avenue,
He used to throw the ball to me when I was just a kid,
They say he shot the president—I don’t think he did.

And Lee Harvey was a friend of mine,
He used to take me fishing all the time,
He used to throw the ball to me when I was just a kid,
They say he shot the president but I don’t think he did.

I’ve seen them pictures of him with the family and a gun,
Shadows were pointin’ every-which-a-way;
But there’s only just one Sun.
Someone faked those photos; that’s not the way it is,
They say he shot the president; I don’t think he did.

And Lee Harvey was a friend of mine,
He used to take me fishing all the time,
He used to throw the ball to me when I was just a kid,
They say he shot the president but I don’t think he did.

I seen it on the TV when Lee Harvey got gunned down,
Murdered by Jack Ruby — the biggest sleaze in town,
He stuck that gun into his ribs;
Says, “Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.”
Ruby killed Lee Harvey — TV proved he did!

And Lee Harvey was a friend of mine,
He used to take me fishing all the time,
He used to throw the ball to me when I was just a kid,
They say he shot the president but I don’t think he did.
