    If you have never played it before, go for it.

    That is a very well orchestrated song with many changes. I'd be interested in knowing if one person directed all that was going on, or was it a group decision? Or did the producer drive it?

    I remember my mom driving me and my buddy to college in Oshkosh around '81 and that song came on the radio. She inquired why they kept singing the same line over and over.

    Hearing that always makes me think of some of my buddies during Viet Nam.... it was one of the songs that I heard a lot around the guys drafted fresh out of high school (and Jim Dandy/Black Oak Arkansas is locked in my head from back then too, for the same reason).
