    So how did he come up with title? Says James: "It's almost like the bass guitar was speaking. And it just seemed to say 'draggin' the line' to me. It's weird. But we had the track before we had the song, and it was like the bass was speaking." http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=18168

    Soulful, electic, and euphoric rock song from 71 that tippytoes the line between California shuffle, Three Dog Night, and chipper 60s pop. This track isn't terribly far away from Black Sabbath if you consider the tones. Use of horns is as congenial as it is incongenial, like a lonely summer night. Ultimately, it is rewarding, not strange.
