This was the best question in Live Journal all week.

Thanks. It's a poll question that's been brewing about in my head for some time -- I just never got around to posting it. I was a bit disappointed by the low turnout, though, 'cause I thought it was a fun, fun, fun poll with endless opportunity to opine. Oh, well.

It's funny that you're the second person to reference the first quote as being from a Joplin song. Sure, she made it really popular back in the day, but it's really a Kris Kristofferson song. It's pretty cool that "Bobby" works for male and female singers. Anyway, there's no disputing that Janis really put some soul into the song. But when we're looking at the lyric itself, not the performance, I'm all in favor of "credit where credit is due" and have to send mad props out to Kris.

Also, I think they're in a semi, not a bus: "Bobby thumbed a deisel down..." -- I don't think you thumb busses down. I think it's cooler in a semi, too.

Charlie Daniels of the torque wrench

Absolutely! That's one of the best lyrical turns in a long, long time. Even people who don't appreciate country music appreciate that lyric.
