A notable sign of changing mores: when the original version of "Big Bad John" was released in 1961, the key line at the end was, "At the bottom of this mine lies a hell of a man." There were so many complaints about it that the line was changed to "At the bottom of this line lies a big, big man." The profanity was simply unacceptable to too many people. Hard to imagine now -- back then it was all too real.

Loved his music, and appreciated that he used all the hams and tenderloins in his food products...
