I really like "That's the Way the World Goes 'Round."
I don't think it has been mentioned yet.

Cool song with great humor and truth to it

I think she might have heard Bonnie's version back when she was a manager at a local Denny's...they had the coolest music piped in...

I'll post this here, too, since there are two Bonnie-related threads going just now (the other is about James Taylor). She opened for JP some years ago here and he brought her out to duet Angel. "I love Bonnie Raitt. I've got a nickname for every one of her freckles"...classic line...also saw her open for John Fogerty once. She is spectacular...

Rok, if you love that song, perhaps you missed my post from earlier in this thread. Here's a hilarious live version of the song. Folks, you HAVE to watch this. You'll be splitting a gut.

The first time I saw John Prine was also the first time I saw Bonnie Raitt, I think it was early 1973, in Mankato, Minnesota. I went because the college radio station was playing a lot of Raitt's first album - Prine was an unexpected gift. I'm happy to see several people mention Dear Abby. I first heard it at that concert and completely broke up laughing by the second chorus - it was so clever that (of course) it was the same as the first but also that the chorus was Abby's advice, which was always the same no matter what the complaint was. It's really hard to write good funny songs and he is as good as it gets. Deeply funny. Prine's generation produced many great songwriters but I think he's in a class by himself. So effective at using simple melodies to convey profound thoughts - thoughts worth expressing.

Like a lot of you I've been a fan from the first album. The album I listen to the most these days is Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings
If John goes before me, I'm going to stop what I'm doing and head straight to the Rockchester Dam

Been listening to Prine a lot lately and felt like this thread could use a bump.

His new album is great. There’s a lot of his older material to which I still need to acquaint myself.

I always tell people "if it weren't for John Prine and Neil Young I never would have learned guitar." Some other overlooked gems, which I just played at a coffeehouse last Friday:

Flashback Blues, Big Old Goofy World, All the Best, Far From Me, Face on the Cutting Room Floor, You Should Have Seen the One that Got Away (both by Steve Goodman), A Good Time, Blue Umbrella.
