Thread Name: Swamp Gas?
Subject: Swamp Gas?
I've been trying to identify a song that I vaguely remember from pop radio of the 1970s. It was a Bob-Seger-like ditty about sex in the back of a pick-up, when the guy knew he was leaving town the next day.

I don't remember much of the lyrics, but it went something like this:

The swamp gas flares
And the [night birds?] they cry out in flight
It feels right
Lying with my back to the [moonlit?] night.

You can hear me sing a probably off-key version of it by clicking "Hear My Voice" on my Yahoo profile:

If anyone can identify the song, I'd be thrilled. It's been running around my head for a quarter of a century now.

Cheers, Hester
