Just got done listening to the “11/22/63” audio book. (Great job by long time actor Craig Wasson on the narration, by the way.) I’m not going to spoil the plot, but this song plays a key role in the breakup of the two main characters, Jake/George and Sadie Dunhill.
The song itself was a big hit, topping the charts for four weeks on the US Billboard charts in August of 1969. Worth a listen.
