"I suspect that most of them HAVE heard the song and know all about Buffett - but it offend their purest folkie souls to admit that they know of such pedestrian mater
No, sorry Wesley I havn't heard the song before, (I have now). As far as I'm concerned it's just a C&W / pop song, nothing special. The only thing offensive to me is it's blandness.
"So, you, Brits, I wonder if you could spend a little time and effort to try to understand us Americans. Go to Spotify or YouTube or wherever, and listen to a little Jimmy Buffett, Steve Goodman, Jerry Jeff Walker, Jim Croce, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings. I think you'll enjoy them.
By the way Joe I like Jim Croce & some Steve Goodman, can't stand Willie Nelson.
