Great song. I like the Nitty Gritty Dirt Bands version. I grew up with it.

Timeless. Speaking of which, I had the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band eating in my restaurant not long ago, and had a chance to tell them how much I enjoyed their cover over the years. My dad used to play MBJ to me while I lay in bed. It is so dear to me for so many reasons

They made it a popular song, but 'ole Jerry Jeff wrote it.

You know how when you get used to one version, all the others sound like abominations?


Well, that one wasn't too bad. Didn't hate it, and that says alot.

'70(Most commonly heard of his)

That and the NGDB cut are really the only ones I like.

Great tune, done by many different artists over the years. Who can for get Sammy's version of it with a little of his fancy footwork thrown in?

Not sure why, but I always liked this song.

Maybe it had something to do with the "puppy love" a female and I shared in the late 60's early 70's.
