"Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go/ Down to Junior's farm where I want to lay low/ The low life, high life, oh, let's go/ Take me down to Junior's farm."
Paul McCartney wrote those words during a six-week stay in Wilson County, Tennessee in 1974. He and his family rented a 133-acre farm just outside of Lebanon from songwriting great Curly Putman ("Green, Green Grass of Home").
Along for the ride was his band, Wings, who rehearsed in Putman's garage for an upcoming tour. And since this is Paul McCartney we're talking about, his surroundings inevitably inspired a future hit song: "Junior's Farm," released later that year.
Eventually, Putman — born Claude Putman Jr. — came to realize that he was "Junior."
