Away down the road there is a hollowed out tree where you lay down a dollar or two, you go round the when you come back again there is a jug of that good old mountain dew...

I am trying to figure out what late 70s/ early 80s southern rock band did a cover of this, I want to say Marshall Tucker but my search results don't have that, any Ideas?

I seem to remember what you're talking about but after a brief search the "rocky-est" version of the song I could find was Willie Nelson's.

Your request is VERY vague.

Well... earlier you have Grandpa Jones. 1930's

Later,,, you have the "Randy Shaw Band" (moonshine medly with Rockytop)

However, I believe you are seeking "Commander Cody and His
Lost Planet Airmen" 1968-73

Stanley Brothers. 1946-1966

Or...."The Smokey River Boys"

uwwwww, uwwwww, I know...."Doc Watson"

Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash







Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Surely, you do not want silly Willie Nelson?

He said "Southern Rock" band. Willie's closer to Southern Rock than any of those except Commander Cody, and even their version isn't particularly rocky. Having never heard of Randy Shaw, I looked them up, and they aren't much of a rock band either, and even further from the 70s. As for the rest of them, all the other bands are straight up country or bluegrass.

I listened to lots of recordings on Spotify. No country/Southern rock band recordings, but lots of fun recordings nonetheless. Here's the recording by Commander Cody And His Lost Planet Airmen. Can't say I like it. They sound drunk, or stoned.
