Thread Name: Don't Renege!
Subject: Don't Renege!
I'm sure I won't find many to agree with me, but Richard Thompson's use of the word "renege" - in the context of the song - doesn't sound right to me. I can't imagine a man saying to his wife/women , "don't renege on our love". I doesn't sound like a natural choice of word.
