    • AmericasHero_JohnWayne, maybe you could give us an idea when you heard this song. I realize that would mean revealing your age, but it might help to narrow it down to a certain time frame. Also, could tell us the context in which you heard it? What I mean is, was it in a movie, on the radio, or some other venue? Any details you can give us might help. :rolleyes:

      I searched Google for about thirty pages, using several blocks of the lyrics you posted, but to no avail.

      It sounds like a totally great song, I'd sure love to find a copy of it myself.

    • AHJW,

      Where were you living at the time? Was it a song you heard often, or just the one time? What I'm aiming at here is this - was the song possibly one that made it onto the charts in 1978? Or was it maybe a local performer, getting some play time on the local station? I hope I'm not hounding you, just looking for any clues that might lead us to an answer.

      Thanks for helping out with additional details :D !
