 Well I thought you knew a lot about the U.S., particularly about the south. Kinda thought you had spent some time here. Thank you for that very cool, and interesting song, as well as some insight into you. Very nice post.

Thanks for taking it down eazy Rope walker ! thats the way the sugar campagne works you go in shifts,  as long as the sugar beets are houled from the fields, the campagne last about 3-4 months, day & night, good money at the time, 700 a week for a 17 year old,you sleep in a doormetory, and safe on exspensis,  glad you like it , maybee copy paste for putting it on a loop?

White Beard Wonder!   Ha, ha!  They just don't call it Mississippi.   Loving this one.  Smooth and happy.  But that sugar factory does not sound so sweet.   24 free.  Great lyrics and story.  Can I borrow your Guzzi?

Wow Andries. Very good song. I love the visuals and Eker history. The blurry stuff made me dizzy though. But I am a dizzy dude.

An Epic.

I could listen to that “8 hours on, 12 off... 24 free” on a loop for 5 more minutes and be happy. Nicely done Mr Eker.
