And yet another one of those songs that'll remain forever new....

....at the Roadhouse, Sirius Ch. 62: "She said so long, country bumpkin....the frost is gone now from the pumpkin..."
I don't remember exactly when I first heard that 1974 Cal Smith hit in its entirety, though I do know for a fact it was when I was in College Station. But I remember the first few times I heard that last refrain I got to where I just couldn't stand it because I thought she was leaving and that those were her parting words. But when I heard the whole thing that changed things completely. It got to be one of my favorite songs and remains such to this day.
