Subject: RE: Little Mattie Groves Is Selling Cars!
What I don't understand is why the song ISN'T "Matty Groves." I mean, it starts out that way, then goes off on a very odd tangent. I think the instrumentation (what we hear in the first two lines, anyway) would make a decent "Matty Groves" in genuine, chintzy late-60s folk-rock style. It's not how I would approach it, but it could work just fine.
Too bad no one did it that way.
