Thread Name: Correct location for historical song?
Subject: RE: Correct location for historical song?
Hi, Fyldeplayer. You wrote the song yourself, and if you yourself value accuracy, then you ought to correct the location. Otherwise, it will get on your nerves the rest of your life. There are too many fake folk songs already.

Here are some ideas to use if names don't scan:
Put a syllable to more than one note.
Use a triplet
Use the name of a nearby stream or church instead of a town
Be vague. Write something like "on the rocky eastern coast".

As Starship asks, what are the lyrics?
