When did we get back to the old John Denver song, about the "Dead Skun k in the Middle of the Road, Stinkin' to High Heaven?"
If I remember correctly, it was a very bad guitar lick in G Major (don e it in D major as well) and the song (music and lyrics) stinks just about as ba d as the skunk. Played guitars all over the world and still own 3.
There ain't nobody who doesn't have anosmia (the inability to smell) who ca n miss a dead skunk, and even if you have, when that particular sulfur-contai ning miasma comes in, it'll still make your eyes smart and your sinuses contract. However, while I've know some dogs and people (myself inclu ded) to be quite unhappy about a skunk contact, I've never yet seen one to die o f it. Unless, of course you were trying unsuccessfully to drag it out o f the highway and got run over by a truck. Missed that one.
