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.

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.
