GUEST,person Lyr Req: Circle Round the Sun (28) RE: Lyr Req: Circle Round the Sun 11 Jan 11

To Avi:

Yes absolutely! Song lyrics are always stolen (or borrowed) especially in blues and folk. Its possible to play simple chords and sing simple melodies (which have appeared in a million other songs before) and to take "standard" lines which appear in many songs (such as the arms like the circle around the sun) to create a "new" song. Other such lyrics include things like "if you dont want my peaches dont shake my tree" and the notion of a rocking chair by a river rocking the blues away. And tons more.
