Quote from: Dr. MD MD on March 25, 2016, 09:12:02 PMI was thinking of that one too but most don't know it as well as some of his others. Great song! I seem to remember seeing Elvis Costello performing it with him somewhere but I couldn't find it anywhere right now.

Quote from: Dr. MD MD on March 26, 2016, 03:13:54 AMOk, this may be the thread to figure something out I've been trying to track down for years now. This isn't really a country song, more like a comedy folk song but it sounds kinda countryish. It's about a guy going to an outhouse to take a shit but then encounters a bear and the lyrics I can remember go something like, "It was bear. A great big mother of a bear..." I'm vague on the rest but I think the chorus resolves by rhyming "bear" with "got out of there" I believe it was done in 2/4 timing. Any help would be appreciated. Like I said, it's literally been years that I've been trying to figure this out. Thanks.

Quote from: Dr. MD MD on March 26, 2016, 03:27:39 AMThis was definitely a recorded song. I heard it on a radio station about 25 years ago but have never been able to figure out who or where. I suppose I should've just called the station at the time but it wasn't a priority and didn't become an obsession until I started to try to tell people about it years later. No one knew. I just wished I could play it for them but I never found it. It could've been a more local thing somewhere, put out on a small or non-existent label now. I sure wish I could find it though. It was just a silly kinda campfire song, really.
Quote from: akwilly on March 26, 2016, 03:30:28 AMit sounds vaguely familiar. Dang now I am curious. Ray Stevens did a lot of songs like that but probably not that one.
