I'm pretty sure this song was about leaving the city and going to the country. Everybody at Woodstock, for good reason, was talking about Vietnam and maybe somebody from Canned Heat said something about that regarding this song, but it seems quite a stretch to think it was written with the war in mind. I also think it sounds just as high and just as good to put a capo on the first fret and play A-D-E. It's kind of difficult on my guitars to play chords on the 13th to 15th frets. You could also play the D# and the F on the 6th and 8th frets if you wanted, but this sounds fine when I play it along with Canned Heat.
