Anybody know the "extended ending" Bob started doing post-Garcia? He keeps repeating the last line...
"Little red light on the highway, big green light on the speedway hey hey-Little red light.... "

I don't have any recordings of it.. but have seen him do it with Ratdog, The Other Ones, etc. I think there's some modulation going on every time he repeats that line, eventually leading back to A minor at the very end.

It caught my ear a few years ago at Alpine under the right "conditions" and blew my mind. Anyone? :D
