but laughter is the best cure I tell you!
.... except maybe the very strong undertones of pedophilia... but that wouldn't have meant anything when the song was recorded, so the sentiment stands.
Phantom 309 is my favourite. Brings a tear to my eye ='(
I know my sense of humour is just wrong don't worry, I'm seeking help.
At the crossroads tonight, where you flagged him down
There was a bus load of kids, comin' from town
And they were right in the middle, when Big Joe topped the hill
It could have been slaughter, but he turned his wheel.
Well, Joe lost control, went into a skid
And gave his life to save that bunch-a kids
And there at that crossroads, was the end of the line
For Big Joe and phantom 309
on Nighthawks at the diner...
Just one more reason to love that album
better than the original. once you've heard the amazing band he has on that album playing it, it's hard to accept the cheap country backing track red sovine has.
