    Originally done by Elvis Presley, 3 Dog Night, and please let me know other versions, but those are the only two I know of. Caught a moment with a low budget camcorder on auto pilot. Thanks again for checking it out.

    Origionaly done by Hoyt Axton, he wrote it. I saw him at the Troubadour in the very early 70’s when he released it. He performed it along with others he wrote like Goddaymn the Pusher Man that Steppenwolf recorded.

    Another Hoyt Axton song recorded by 3 Dog Night was Joy To The World. My favorite of his is Green Back Dollar.

    Never heard of this one CB, didn't think too much of it originally, but it gets better and better as it goes along. Good job and thanks for posting.

    Thank you and I agree. The lyrics "We'll I never been to Spain" made me think of you. Thanks for being a good sport.

    Jim622 Thank you.

    And I believe I'm all done posting from this gig night. I look forward to watching your videos this year and inspiring you with thumbs ups and comments. There's so many fine guitar players here, so thanks again, everyone, for checking out mine.
