Thanks, Charley. Good song, especially for a 'drop-o'-the-hat' lyric. Ever notice how most 'folky' songs of daring and prowess end up with the hero 'buying the farm' in some way or other. I guess that's more exciting than the alternative of the hero retiring to a little country place for a mundane existence on a modest pension.

I hope it's well received when you do it. In my rare public performances I do a lot of old trad songs and a few old tunes with lyrics rewritten for a little more local flavor. Most involve someone dying or at least having their heart broken beyond repair. About half my audience will like them and about half will grouse that I don't do any "happy" songs. Since they're getting the entertainment for free, it's all I can do to not point out that when they start paying they can pick the songs.
