In 1974, Grand Funk Railroad covered a song which was written by John Ellison. He recorded the original with his band, Soul Brothers Six, and had a small hit with it in 1967. The drummer of Grand Funk Railroad, however, heard the song a lot on a local radio station, and used to sing it in the back of the car when they were travelling. The whole group would sing along, and the manager then came up with the idea to record it. Eventually, Grand Funk Railroad brought it to number 3 in the US, making the biggest hit version of the song. Enjoy
