    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!

                        --Demian McLean
