Absolüt Gruv plays at Long Lake Corn Days

I saw these young guys 2 years ago, - Minnesota kids playin' Southern Rock - A tough row to hoe. I have not seen them since- but they are still playin, so I am 'going to see'. Their singer was energetic and he worked the keyboard.

I wish they would play this "Art Bellsque" CCR 60s Classic:

It Came Out Of The Sky

Oh, it came out of the sky, landed just a little south of Moline
Jody fell out of his tractor, couldn't believe what he seen
Laid on the ground and shook fearin' for his life
Then he ran all the way to town screamin' it came out of the sky

Well, a crowd gathered round and a scientist said it was marsh gas
Spiro came and made a speech about raising the Mars tax
The Vatican said, woe the Lord has come,
Hollywood rushed out an epic film
And Ronnie the Popular said it was a communist plot

Oh, the newspapers came and made Jody a national hero
Walter and Eric said they'd put him on a network TV show
The White House said, "Put the thing in the Blue Room"
The Vatican said, "No, it belongs to Rome"
And Jody said, it's mine and you can have it for seventeen million.
