Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train
And I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained
It rode us all the way to New Orleans

    That sweet sound which always brings the bitter thoughts of "What if - what if she had lived?" Bittersweet indeed.

    Gone to soon! LOL She died in 1971! If she did not die then she would've died in the 80's for sure! LOL
