    • Me too- with Paul Carrick on vocals- one of those songs not played to death that you enjoy every time you hear it!

  1. That song, “Chevy Van”, I think it actually had a lot of guys buying vans! At least in my town it did. Interesting story: one of my younger brothers ended up living in NC for awhile, in the town where Sammy Johns lives, and he got to know Sammy. Well, maybe not that interesting 😉

  2. Gotta love blabbermouth who kept yelling, “Shoot her! Shoot her!” I’ve never been to Gastonia, but from the looks of it probably wouldn’t want to go. I wonder what put her out of her mind like that?
