Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
This song is about two hippies and a dog taking a cross-country road trip in an old car that runs poorly. The protagonists of the song get mired in the Georgia clay, steal food from a farmer and work to pay it off, and end up living in Los Angeles, but the old car makes them want to hit the road again. Judging from my experience with classic cars, the 1946-55 Kaiser automobile runs poorly and fits into the time frame of the song. (thanks, Darrell - Eugene, United States)
Lobo is singer/songwriter Roland Kent LaVoie. Lobo means "Wolf" in Spanish. (thanks, Diana - Huntsville, AL)
