I May Be Crazy, But I Think Not

I first heard this song while a freshman in college back in 1978 on the live, “Compleat Tom Paxton album.  One might say this is a song meant to be sung on a Saturday evening.

TomPaxton_TheCompleatTomPaxton_EvenCompleater_AlbumCover-140x140I have rarely  never been in agreement with Tom Paxton’s politics, but he skillfully uses his point of view to write funny, political satire and unlike today,  there was no hate or pontificating.  You might even catch me humming, singing or playing one of his songs that makes fun of my point of view.

Yeah, I know, hard to believe.

This video, while not dated, was probably back from that era of the late 70’s -early 80″s. (Tom will turn 80 next month).   It is not political, well kind of, but funny and an accurate description of life in the jungles.

Aside from politics, he has an impressive catalogue of music to his credit. Tom Paxton is one of those guys that does not get enough recognition for his work.
