Just as a few words of encouragement, I believe I heard the story before I heard the song.

Hi, Susanne - Stan's notes on the "Between the Breaks...Live!" CD certainly aren't very helpful He says:
I really like the guy in this song. He's every person who ever had experts tell him what he wanted to do was impossible, then did it anyway. May you always be like the Mary Ellen Carter.
Did it appear on other albums that might have more of an explanation on the liner notes? The Sing Out! Magazine Web site says the song is in Volume 29, #3. Anybody have that back issue? Can you tell us what it says?

Having learned such a lot about 'Spancil Hill' and 'Barratt's Privateers', maybe the Mudcat community can help me with this one, too. I can't find any background to the song on any Stan Rogers sites but it would be nice to know where the story came from. - Susanne
