images-2I know. I know. The Orange Blossom Special is a showcase piece for super-fast bluegrass fiddle players and banjo pickers. Not for the average Joe – and especially not for poor Bumba with his guitar and harmonica.

But, say what you like (and there is a comments section below) I love the lyrics. I can’t think of anything much sweeter than this, this old country music that says:

Look yonder comin’

Comin’ down the railroad track…….

…….I’m goin down to Florida, get some sand in my shoes.

Or maybe California, get some sand in my shoes

I’ll take that Orange Blossom Special

Lose these New York blues
