This was a "Smile" song, revived for 20/20. One of Brian's most complicated productions, it features three sections, namely "Home on the Range", "Who Ran The Iron Horse" and The Grand Coulee Dam." Features some of the most astonishing vocal arrangements in recorded history, and intriguing lyrics from Van Dyke Parks. It is generally belived that the song was almost completed during the "Smile" sessions, though Carl may have added his vocals during the 20/20 sessions.
