* The story of 'Highway Patrolman' is set in an area where one can drive into Canada; however,
* The lyrics say Joe is 'a sergeant out of Perrineville.' The only American city with that name is in New Jersey. . . .
* While the lyrics state, 'I musta done a hundred and ten through Michigan county that night,' in actuality there is no Michigan County anywhere in the United States.
* The chorus refers to 'dancin' with Maria as the band played '"Night of the Johnstown Flood."' There was no song with such a title when the song was released."
