Script takes Peter Fonda from prison, where he has developed a musical ability, to Texas in pursuit of James Callahan, C&W name who has stolen the title song from Fonda.

Accidental shooting of Callahan in a scuffle launches a manhunt for Fonda by police chief John Crawford, mayoral candidate not about to be embarrassed at election time. Susan Saint James, one of Callahan’s singing group, beds and befriends Fonda and, by clever p.r., makes him a major new platter star to be reckoned with by Michael Lerner, a music biz sharpie.

The film revolves into a series of chases, interleaved with some okay songs which Fonda is said to have sung himself. Story opts for the laughs and smiles which come easily in abundance.
