This a song a cut my teeth on as a young guitar player in the early ’60s. And they actually said DAMN! I felt so naughty singing that word. That cool e minor guitar vamp at the beginning. Mmmm mm. So cool.

The “From the Hungry I” (I remember the LP as The K.T. live at The H. I) was an album in the house that I found most amusing. I can still sing the Merry Little Minuet (“They’re rioting in Africa (whistling) They’re starving in Spain (whistling) there’s [sic] hurricanes in Florida (whistling) and Texas needs rain”) (u.s.w.)

“But we can be thankful and tranquil and proud, that Man’s been endowed with a mushroom-shaped cloud…”
