I remember hearing an interview of JJ and him saying, "First time I heard this song, I knew I had to sing it..."

Never heard the original before, and don't know why I never thought to look it up until today but here's a sample from Amazon.

Band is "100 Proof Aged in Soul"

And do you know that when they first started doing this song live, JJ used to sing "In my mind I lied, cuz in my heart I know..." and when they recorded it for Orange Blossoms he changed the lyrics to the original lyrics "In my heart I lied, cuz in my mind I know."  Bugged the crap outta me at first cuz I always liked it the other way 'round.

I read somewhere that JJ first heard this song in a old school diner like in Arkansas or somewhere like that and the diner had them small jukebox at each table. I remember my mom taking to this diner in Ohio when I was just a young-un and loving it cause I got to play songs while we ate........Good Stuff! Good Find TOX!
