Reminds me of my dad and uncle. These are great men.

As a song. . . meh. For it's ability to trigger nostalgia in me. . . not crap.

The 45 of this song was the first record I ever owned. I remember being fascinated by an animated video for it, which I believe I saw on The Sonny and Cher Show.

Not crap, even if "Don't Mess Around with Jim" is better.

Same here.

I also remember crying while listening to Time in a Bottle as a kid after my dog was taken away.

Not Crap....I love it when mustachioed men make me cry.

Isn't there a Thunderdome here between those two songs?

Not Crap.

I also have a familial bias to Jim Croce. You know, a little family pride.

Maury Muehleisen was a cousin of mine on my mom's side. I can't remember if he was a 2nd or 3rd cousin though.

Regardless, it's still a fun song, miles better from some of the other singer-songwriter stuff out there from that time (I'm looking at you James Taylor and Jackson Browne)
You guys don't mind that I crash your little sausage party, right?

As I understand it this was a song that was played in New Orleans like a old folk song that was considered public domain. Jim Croche heard it and played, published and copyrighted it. He no doubt was following in the steps of AJ Carter who pretty much made it a lifetime goal to pubish and copyright all of the appalachain folk music.

I liked ODB's version.

NOT CRAP.

Good song.

Jim Croce always makes me think of my dad, which I like.
