    It's time to revive this game that we used to play on HTT so here's the 1st one in tribute to a member of this band who recently died at the age of 61[he wrote this song btw]......Took my fam'ly away from my Carolina home had dreams about the west and started to roam.

    The song was written in hopes of being placed on Charlie Daniels break-through record "Fire on the Mountain". :wink: That didn't happen but the song was a big hit for the Tucker Band.

    That is a tough one Kevin.
    Here's another clue and some interesting trivia:
    A "customized" version of the song was the last rock 'n roll song played on the Larry Lujack show on WCFL in Chicago on 3-15-76 before the station switched from top 40 to a beautiful music format.

    While i'm thinking of it here's one that i'd started back at HTT that nobody got but i'll post again......Everybody here is out of sight They don't bark, and they don't bite They keep things loose,they keep things light.[this song came out around the same time as the other one 1973 it reached #13 on the Billboard top 100 that year too]

    It's time for another pretty easy one.....Madman drummers bummers,Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat in the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat with a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kind've older I tripped the merry go round.

    And here's another one......With a pair of heavy-duty zircon-encrusted tweezers in my hand every other wrangler would say I was mighty grand.

    Ooo I love this game and I miss it.

    Kevin, your last one is FZ, one of my favorite tunes of his, M.

    Here's a couple of relatively easy ones:

    1. It's alright if you love me, it's alright if you don't. I'm not afraid of you runnin' away honey I get the feeling you won't.

    2. When I'm with you, it doesn't matter where we are, or what we're doing. I'm with you, that's all that matters.

    and a little harder one:

    3. Teddy sniffing glue, he was 12 years old, fell from the roof on East Two-Nine. Cathy was 11 when she pulled the plug on 26 reds and a bottle of wine.
