This is one of the songs I sing in my classroom. I have a great time singing with my students. This was their first introduction to the blues. It's great to hear 30 7th grader singin a blues about a pool hustle that goes bad and ends in a stabbing and shooting. ;) And you thought hip-hop was violent.
But seriously, this is such a classic story-song by one of the most underappreciated singer/songwriters ever. Jim Croce had a playing and singing style that was truly his own. Defenitely one of my big influences.
