Hi,

This one looks fun. Has anybody heard of this song before. I am interested in title, artist, and lyrics, year if possisble for this request that I have received:

While in college in the early 70's my brother and I loved to sing this song, but now we can't remember all the words. It's about a guy and his harmonica which was called "Mr. Horner" because I think that a company named Horner made the official Marine Band Harmonica. The lyrics I do remember go like this...

Me and Mr. Horner went to Tuscon, Arizona, Trying to hitch a rider to Denver. When out of the cold came a highway patrol To pick up on our gender. "Is it a her or a him, or maybe Tiny Tim - Up against the wall," says the fat one. "Well that's a cute mustach, do you have any stash - blah, blah, (can't remember this line) blah..." Well it may sound silly, but I'm staring at the billy Quietly asking myself now Willy, They use those things to make you ear drums ring, blah, blah, (can't remember this either) blah

Well, alas I've never heard it, but it would be "Mr. Hohner" as that's the harmonica company.

Bobby Darin recorded a song called "Me and Mr. Hohner." It was released as a single in 1969, and on the LP "Commitment." It is included in the 4-CD set called "As Long As I'm Singing: The Bobby Darin Collection," Rhino #72206, 1995. Click here for a description of the album. That's all I know about this song.

I was a DJ in Southern California (KFXM San Bernardino) when this some was released... A great song from Bobby Darin as he was becoming a social commentator... Look for it on YouTube and it will flog your memory... "AND THE HITS JUST KEEP ON COMIN'" DC

Any chance of someone correcting the thread title from "Homer" to "Hohner"?

Me and Mr. Hohner
Standin' on the corner
Not doin' nothin' to no one.

When a squad car stops
And out jump cops
You one o' them, if I ever saw one.

One o' what I said?
As my face turned red
Up against the wall, says the tall one.

That's a cute mustache
Have ya got any hash?
I'd like to make a buy, says the small one.

Now da whole thing's silly
But I'm starin' at the billy
Quietly askin' myself now will he …

Use that thing
To make my eardrums ring
It's all a bad dream
And I'm in South Philly
Now tell 'em, Mr. Hohner …

Me and Mr. Hohner
In Yuma, Arizona
Tryin' to hitch a ride to Denver.

Well, out o' a toll
Comes the highway patrol
To check up on my gender.

Is it her or him
Or maybe Tiny Tim?
Now up against the fence, says the dense one.

You have picked a bad spot
To smoke your pot
Whatcha gonna do two against one?

Now da whole thing's silly
But I'm starin' at the billy
Quietly askin' myself now will he …

Use that thing
To make my eardrums ring
It's all a bad dream
And I'm in South Philly
Now tell 'em, Mr. Hohner …

Me and Mr. Hohner
Relaxin' out at Kona
Hawaiian sun can be groovy.

When a pair of MPs
Yell out, freeze!
And I think I gotta part in a movie.

Hey! I'm talkin' to you
Tell me what did I do?
You're a draft card burner, says the thin one.

We can tell by your looks
That you read too many books o' wars
And that's because ya ain't been in one.

Now the whole thing's silly
But I'm starin' at the billy
Quietly askin' myself now will he …

Use that thing
To make my eardrums ring
It's all a bad dream
And I'm in South Philly
Now tell 'em, Mr. Hohner …
