Andrew McCrew toured with the carnival, posthumously, for about 35 years. He was buried in 1973. That was when Don McLean read an article about him and wrote the song. When the song came out, someone stepped forward and donated a headstone on McCrew's previously unmarked grave. The fourth verse of the song is carved on the headstone. (Anyway, that's what Don McLean tells on the live album.)
