        Steve Miller:  "This tune was made up one night out underneath the
stars at a party.  I was stretched out on the hood of an old car, playing
guitar, looking for shooting stars and it just seemed to write itself.  The
slide guitar part is a Fender Stratoscaster plugged into a Manny's fuzztone
box, run through a Hammond organ Leslie speaker set on chorus.  Yeahhh!"

                                        Enjoy!
