    This is brilliant. The first time I heard it, Porter really had me going. I didn’t figure out the surprise ending until he finally blurts it out!

    One of Porter’s best songs. His RCA Victor single was a #2 Billboard hit in January 1969. Buck Trent’s electric banjo licks are such an integral part of that record. Whenever I hear this song I listen for Buck’s tasty fills just as much as the compelling lyrics.

    Porter’s producer Bob Ferguson wrote this song. Ferguson also wrote the classic “Wings Of A Dove.”
