So, Lead... you should have sung Spring of 65..

"I woke up one morning, in the spring of '65
I thought myself quite lucky, to be found alive
I geared up my mules, my business to pursue
Instead of hauling four loads, I only hauled two."

It's a wonderful song about farmers going to a dance and drinking all night, with the last verse:

"Come all you newsy women, who scatter news about
Don't tell no tales upon us, we're bad enough without out
Don't tell no tales upon us, or kick up any fuss
You've been guilty of the same thing, perhaps a whole lot worse."
