the whistle at the end was not supposed to be the end of the song. Otis died in a plane crash into Lake Monoa in Wisconsin 3 miles short of the airport 12/10/67 before he could finish the final song verse. RIP Otis.

If you can't feel the song, skip it. Not everyone has empathy. If you don't know what empathy is, don't bother looking it up.

So I guess I'll remain the same...And this lone
