Thanks Danny! I think you are right, I can’t think of any of their other songs. I love the colorful lyrics on this song, makes me smile.

I love that old Brownsville Station hit. I believe that was their only hit too. You did it justice, great cover

I appreciate the kind words Uncle John! New songs, especially ones with something different like a few slides, are always fun to play.

Sounding great, slingers.

Thanks Kale, AGP, and Brian! We took a couple weeks off since I was in Virginia for a few weeks. It’s good to be playing together again. Glad you enjoyed this one. The slides make it fun to play.

This song brings back fond memories of high school. I remember listening to it on the radio my junior year. The math instructor would play the radio while we were working on homework. This song merited comments to the class! No surprise there!
