I think "The Way I Feel" & "The Pony Man" would do it for me!!

I was at the Chattanooga show earlier this year when he did Pony Man, a real treat to hear!

It would never happen, of course, and it's not that obscure a song, but I'd love to hear "Mountains and Maryann"; I don't think he's got the range anymore, and of course Red is gone now and couldn't do his understated, but wonderful lead. Still, it's a great song, maybe one of his happiest and most upbeat. "All is well...."

Quite interesting to see all the different songs that we all would like to hear. Some I never liked, especially the Auctioneers Song, and some I loved, like Looking At The Rain, Tattoo, Talking In Your Sleep, Somewhere USA, Summer Side Of Life. Just shows the different taste in what his fans like, but the good part is, we all like many. Nice topic.

2) Its worth beliveing (Old Dan's records).
3) H'way songs (Old Dan's records).
4) Biscuit City (Salute).
It was May 7, 1982 in Lansing, Michigan when I heard him play "It's Worth Believing" It came off great, but that was the only time I heard that tune live. I've never heard any of the other three you mention, though they'd be wonderful to hear -- especially HiWay Songs.
