Subject: RE: Who/what is the Great Speckled Bird?
The most amazing thing about this song is the myriad number of country songers who have been attracted to it. Its very mystifying if you come to country music fairly late in life - you really wonder if its some sort of club. And you search for the metaphor - but even wonderful expositions like Jeanie's do not explain quite why this song has such resonance and meaning for country music artists.
