John Stewart was a popular musician when I was in my teens and twenties. He wrote lines like this one from his song Kansas Rain -

"Standing in line at the Bank of America - nobody spoke they were in the house of God..."

He also wrote in his song July Your a Woman about a time when driving with a six pack of Coors beside you and picking up hitchhikers was considered cool. In that song, the driver who has just picked up the good-looking hitchhiker in California says, "well hell I was just going to the store for cigarettes but I'll go to Seattle with ya." Something a bit wilder about those times or maybe it's just me getting old.

Anyway I was glad to see this John Stewart song re-purposed for use in our times.
