Just another old song I almost forgot

A bird in my neighborhood, it's a feisty little thing but I don't know what it is.

It's just fun to listen to. Of course it was 1969 and it was becoming ever more popular to do the weed. I'm not really sure if it was weed this song is about but it certainly wasn't anything legal.

You're probably not old enough to remember it, but it was almost a hit in 1969.

I prefer the video and explanation on this version... Good beat.
There was a request for this song a short while ago (within the last few months). I have always wanted to do "Little Green Bag" ... and now I have! When I fi...

I always like to use videos of live performances in the year the song originated when I can find one.

@rebelann Sometimes that works - other times, the official video gets released after the song has hit the charts. I usually go for the one that (a) sounds the best, and (b) has an interesting video

I never heard this song, it is weird, because it was sang at the Festival di Pesaro in Italy and I still lived in Italy in 1969.

Maybe back in those days Italy did not want those kinds of songs on the radio @LadyDuck

I remember when this came out, in 1969, I was 15 and had no idea what he was singing about. I didn't find out about the type of thing that might be in that bag till I was in my 20s--such an innocent time, stuff like that was done in secret and nice people certainly didn't indulge! Quite a different scene just a few years later, though. Have you read the lyrics? I guess he's trying to escape his lack of love. What a sad song, I never would have guessed.

I was 20 when it came out and a friend told me what it was about. Living in El Paso back then also meant that we got information later than many other places, heck, they were still into 50s music here and if not for the military families I probably wouldn't have found out about it.
