His pre-King of the Road (1965) era, which also included, Chug-a-Lug; I think "Do-Wacka-Do," "Reincarnation," & "Engine No. 9" were on the album that included King of the Road (?), which became his signature song -- theme to his TV show. It was followed by singles, "England Swings," and "Kansas City Star." He later admitted to popping uppers like candy throughout this period, after he had kicked them. He said so in at least one Johnny Carson appearance.
I hope, in heaven, he's getting all the maple syrple he wants.

'Purple' is unrhymable, so he just had a little fun with 'syrup.' I always laugh at that.Esskayess - Dallas, Tx

He wrote this in Phoenix? That's so cool! I like "King of Kansas City" more, but this song is pretty good too.Erikka - Buckeye, Az
