Posted in 101 #1 Song of The Day, 101 Gold's Posts

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the day was written and performed by a former soldier who was learning how to be a telephone lineman when he met the character who inspired the song.

Jim Croce was stationed at Fort Dix in NJ. The guy stayed at the base about a week and one evening, he turned around  and said he was really fed up and tired; so he left – went AWOL! He came back later to collect his last paycheck!!! He was handcuffed and taken away. Jim said he knew that someday he would write a song about just how “bad” he was and that song reached number one on July 21, 1973 – it’s “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown”
