Great comparison! Was never aware of Little Willie John's original, recorded in the year of my birth! And, I was only vaguely aware of Little Milton's '69 version...I was 14, and may have heard it on Houston's hit radio, KILT-AM once or twice! Hard to forget the "grits ain't groceries" line, even if I wasn't sure what grits even were!
