workin a da car wash babaahyaa..//…and windup working at a gas station…oohh nf 😉
He didn't have a shirt?
He Reminds Me Of Sonny Bono But Better
Who is that other genius playing the solos and fills? Hes amazing.
I've loved Jim since I was a kid….but the Ovations….oh the humanity.
Jim Croce was great, and his music still is. The modern day me too movement would undoubtedly protest this song, but no matter. I love it anyway. Props aslo to Maury Muehlheisen for helping Jim to be so great. I wish both where still around.
Hey man, what's in Jim's back pocket? AM radio??Anyway… no need for drums here… so much rythm
Man he was so good!!! He left us too soon.
Oh man, how great he was. Amazing
Back then, you needed a voice to make it.
Randy Newman gave Jim that shirt! He thought he needed a new shirt to go on the t.v with!
Brilliantly clever, witty song. I remember seeing it broadcast on Whistle Test all those years ago and haven't seen it since ! So thank you !! (BTW I always thought he did Operator too, but your list says he didn't ? Ah well…)
25 people with no taste.
Watch Maury's fingering during the chorus – Amazing! This is my favorite Croce song, and this run-thru is spectacular.
Admitting with a blush that this song inspired one of my own, MANY moons ago: "[I've Got] The Sleep-walking, Keep-talking, Love-sighing, Night-crying Blues." Now, if I had JUST possessed his talent with voice and guitar, I might have had a hit! Heavy sigh. . .
Damn. Still miss Jim. 😢
I miss this folk poet/singer/writer we lost him WAY too soon- R.I.P. pal and your son is carrying on in your tradition, and doing it well.
The greatest troubadour to ever walk the earth. Taken far too soon.
Loved it since I was a kid!!! "Now I got them steadily-depressing. low-down, mind-messing, workin'-at-the-car-wash blues…"
This one is one of my favorite songs he did!!!!!!
so while im in my rubber suit i just kept rubbin his car
the guitarist looks at jim like he's in love.
Long live Mr. Croce & Mr. Muehleisen !
Great song and artist. Who would really thumb down that? Shame on them. Be nice if FB had a thumb down that is where it would count.
who's never thought this song while doing some crap job !
One of a small group of musicians who found beauty in an Ovation. Glen Campbell owned & played several. Miss Jim & Maury.
kinda reminds me of link from GMM
I am 27 and listening 👂 any other young people like jim
Maury so unheralded and mostly forgotten… I loved his guitar work. I heard that they originally started out with aurum as the front man?
"The man wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius, the man said we got all that we can use…" One of the best lines in rock.
My favorite songwriter/guitarist of all time. Just a joy to listen to.
11 people must have old soggy shoes
Who's the gentleman playing the other guitar? They both sound great!
great song..i like it…
oh my…. growing up a little boy in central PA I heard his music allot! what a talent! Maury lit those songs up like no other! what an amazing duo! such a tragic loss…
For the Croce fan, this is a treasure. There was no one like him, he had a style all his own.
Talkin about Kanye
ok guitar players….what chord is jim playing at 2:35 over the words 'yea I got them'…..I play a d7 at the 3rd fret but he is clearly not.
if you can listen to his music and not smile..sorry to tell you but you're dead..
I could have rocked that shirt back in '69
