Songwriter: Jerry Jeff Walker

Song 6 of 6 (recorded at family's house with kitchen sounds)


This was the second song Jerry Jeff Walker wrote. Michael's version was learned off JJW's first recording of it, on his Mr. Bojangles album.
Greatness in the making.

Reminds me of his rendition of "Will I Ever Catch Another Butterfly," similar chord patterns.

yes, and he got better with time.
