MIKE’S COMMENTS: Me and my two kids always sing this song on long car trips. Seems to me it’s a great “story” song and the ending nicely sneaks up on you. This is supposed to be the “rollicking roadhouse version”, so feel free to add clinking glasses and unintelligeable shouting… Bobby Keys, eat your heart out!
