I talked to an old fellow radio buddy that I hadn't caught up with in several years yesterday and he turned me on to this amazing and funny song that is similar to Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant. I don't know how I missed this song growing up (especially since it's over 13 minues) but judging from the comments section, although it came out in the late 60's, it was still being played in the late 70's on KAAY Little Rock and lots of other AOR stations including the one I grew up listening to, 98Rock Tampa Bay.
