Walkin' Music: Whitewash County

Been listening Elton John's The One as I walk. I like the track "Whitewash County" despite its blatant accusation of infinite southern racism. (Elton John is pretty much an idiot with respect to all matters other than music.) I like the track for two reasons.

First, very few songs can incorporate the phrase "sticky as a chili dog" in its lyrics and get away with it. (It is, however, more evidence of how clueless Sir Elton really is. Chili dogs may be a lot of things, but they're not sticky.)

Second, and more significantly, Elton delivers some stellar piano work beginning at 4:30 and lasting for 45 seconds.
