Musical Interlude: Freda Comes, Freda Goes (1975)

A while back, I had found a video of the Fortunes' 1971 hit, "Freedom Comes, Freedom Goes", and at the time, I said I remembered hearing a country version of the same song, but couldn't think of the artist.

That mystery's been solved. Four years after the Fortunes told the story of a flower child-debutante named Freedom, Bobby G. Rice hit the top 10 on Billboard's country chart, but rechristened the title character of the song, hence the change to "Freda Comes, Freda Goes". There's no video, but a montage from Guy Miller will suffice for now.
