Hay you music mavens out there,
Here in the wilds of the North Cascades mountains we get what we call "summer people". One of these is a professor at Hendrix college in Arkansas and he is compiling a list of songs that either have Arkansas in the title or in the lyrics or are Arkansascentric. All I have been able to add to his list is Funky Arkansas by John Mooney.
If anyone can add titles and band/musician/cd/vinyl it would be greatly appreciated. Does not have to be original artist. Below is what he has so far-
