I used to do Ira Hayes, and in days long gone by, I was keeping company with a nice girl whose father had a title, and an American social climbing snob of a Mother. I was invited to the house for dinner, and asked to bring my guitar. After the Phillipina house maid had cleared the table, I was asked to perform, in the billiard room. So I sang Ira Hayes to this silly American woman and her Mother who was a 'Grand Dame' of amazing attitude. The silence that followed was palpable, and for some reason, I was never invited again.
I don't think they enjoyed it, but I sure as hell did.
