Subject: RE: Cool Hand Luke / Plastic Jesus
I think you'll find that the late Ernie Marrs (a wonderful songwriter from the south)was responsible for much of "Plastic Jesus". I'm told he denied writing it and claimed he had "collected" it. Wonder if he got royalties (or even asked for them) from the Cool Hand Luke people.
