Baby Ain't That Fine

This song compares love
To good fried food, Georgia pines,
Birds, bells and sunshine.

This is a Dallas Frazier song that scored a hit for Gene Pitney and Melba Montgomery in 1965. Bob Dylan and the Band recorded their version during the 1967 Basement Tapes sessions. The haiku is just about what you'd expect from a song in which lovers tell each other how happy they'll be. In fact, they say their love will "sizzle and fry."
