    Quiz #41

    This singer/songwriter, who is still with us, was born in the place where a “Churchhill” is famous.
    It might be Winston, or it might not be.

    If you get the song, you will get this singer. He wrote it. It was released in the 70s.
    The song is based on a true event in his life while he was attending a political convention. The song is not about politics.

    You should write “down” all the clues in this quiz.

    1. Who is the singer?
    2. What is the song?


    Hint #1: Dec5: The song is a true account of Hall's experience at the 1972 Democratic National Convention, where he had a conversation with an old janitor at a Miami airport hotel. The janitor appraises his own life by concluding that the only worthwhile things are the listed in the song's title.

    Woodman, Yes, it is. So now you know the singer was born in Kentucky.

    Not "Hello Vietnam". Good guess though sparky.
    The song title does not name any places and it is not political.
