Thread Name: Distortion of History in Folk Song
Subject: RE: Distortion of History in Folk Song
as Gordon..(or Ed Trickett) said at one of their concerts.."you don't have to believe everything you sing"..(the song was "The Middle Class Life is the Best of All")

the songs can at least tell some part of the story from one viewpoint...and inspire us go look up other versions in the history books(which may or may not help find the truth)
