A song from the late 70's and I remeber who sang it and what the name of the song was.
Anyone remember this one?

4. Wait, never mind. I'm an idiot.
Googled the lyrics to China Grove -- not what you're thinking.

When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
down around San Antone
and the folks are risin' for another day
'round about their homes.
The people of the town are strange
and they're proud of where they came.

Well, you're talkin' 'bout China Grove, wo, oh, oh,
oh, China Grove.

Well, the preacher and the teacher,
Lord, they're a caution, they are the talk of the town.
When the gossip gets to flyin' and they ain't lyin';
when the sun goes fallin' down.
They say that the father's insane
and dear Missus Perkin's a game.

We're talkin' 'bout the China Grove, wo, oh, oh,
oh, China Grove.

But ev'ryday there's a new thing comin',
the ways of an oriental view.
The sheriff and his buddies
with their samurai swords,
you can even hear the music at night.
And though it's part of the Lone Star State
people don't seem to care,
they just keep on lookin' to the East.

Talkin' 'bout the China Grove, oh, China Grove.

I've had that earworm for days now.

When the lights go down In the California town People are in for the evening.
I jump into my car And I throw in my guitar My heart beatin' time with the breathing
Driving over Kanan Singing to my soul 'Cause people out there turn the music into gold

My buddy Jim Bash He is working pumping gas And he makes two fifty for an hour
He's got rhythm in his hands As he's tapping on the cans Sings rock and roll in the shower
Driving over Kanan Singing to his soul 'Cause people out there turn the music into gold

California girls are the prettiest in the world Each one a song in the making
Singin' rhymes with me, I can hear the melody Story is there for the taking
Driving over Kanan Singing to my soul 'Cause people out there turn the music into gold

When the lights go down In the California town People are in for the evening
I jump into my car And I throw in my guitar My heart beatin' time with the breathing
Driving over Kanan Singing to my soul 'Cause people out there turn the music into gold

3. John Stewart
one of the really great American songwriters. The song is Gold, on "Bombs Away Dream Babies".

If you ever get a chance to hear The Phoenix Concerts or California Bloodlines albums, DO IT! He is as fine a songwriter ever walked the earth in the 20th century.

8. Your original post looks a little careless
with the spelling and grammar. Please forgive me for being a grammar nazi.

9. I'm a shitty typist and talking with my son at the same time.
Lets see if the "Fixit" window is still open.
