Dang me if you don’t get this singer/songwriter pretty fast.
The quiz song was written by him. I know that Huckleberry Finn knows it.

Who is the singer and what is the song?

Gary,

The obvious title would be Dang Me but Huck Finn is always traveling so is it King of the Road by Roger Miller?

Woodman

Woodman, I wouldn't make it that easy. You are correct with Roger Miller as the singer.
The song is not Dang Me or King of the Road.
Huckleberry Finn is a big clue with regards to the song.

Sparky, YES! It is River In The Rain by Roger Miller. He wrote it for the Broadway production of "Big River: The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn". It ran for over 1000 performances. Roger Miller was a very brilliant and talented songwriter.
You and Woodman are co-winners in this quiz. He got Roger and you got the song. It is a favorite of mine. It can be heard (with him singing it at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nZNwR2maas
Really nice guitar in it too!
