I don’ t know how many times i have used this song on mixtapes or radio shows over the years, but it continues to be a favorite weird 60’s mover-groover. Kind of a Dylan spoof here, they got to number 12 in the country in Sept 67, only to break up the following year, when their follow up Am I High (Boy Am I High), failed to achieve similar success. The musicians did have previous success, as well as after, including playing with Jerry Lee Lewis.

don’t worry about a thing, just let it all hang out!
