I was going to use Paul Revere and the Raiders singing Cherokee Nation for today, in fact I even had the post ready to go when this song popped into my head. I can't think of the last time I heard this song ANYWHERE let alone saw the movie.
I remember watching the movie (with Robby Benson) when I was 8 or 9 (it came out in 1976 -- thank you IMDB!). Oh and here is a bit of trivia from the movie for you. It was directed by Max Baer Jr., aka Jethro on The Beverly Hillbillies.
