NOTES:
1.  “…As it says in Jim Morrison: Life, Death, Legend by Stephen Davis, in 1962, while Jim was attending 
Florida State University in Tallahassee, he was seeing a girl named Mary Werbelow who lived in Clearwater, 
280 miles away. Jim would oftentimes hitchhike to see her. "Those solitary journeys on hot and dusty 
Florida two-lane blacktop roads, with his thumb out and his imagination on fire with lust and poetry 
and Nietzsche and God knows what else - taking chances on redneck truckers, fugitive homos, and predatory 
cruisers - left an indelible psychic scar on Jimmy, whose notebooks began to obsessively feature scrawls 
and drawings of a lone hitchhiker, an existential traveler, faceless and dangerous, a drifting stranger 
with violent fantasies, a mystery tramp: the killer on the road.”…”

2.  Ray Manzarek and guitarist Roy Rogers covered this song as an instrumental duet on their 2008 
album "Ballads Before the Rain".  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riders_on_the_Storm

Because it has the right chords, not c-d, where it changes at, unlike previous versions!
