Thread Name: Lyr Add: Mary Ellen Carter PARODY (Blue/Rogers)
Subject: RE: new Stan Rogers parody
Actually, it's hardly parodic at all - it's very well done, and I suspect (though it's pure speculation) SR would have smiled. While we're on the subject, liner notes on one or two of Stan's albums make veiled references to his having been perhaps not the easiest guy in the world to get along with. Does anyone have background on that? Also - are there any SR songs that mention Fancophones or Native Americans? I have most of his recorded stuff, all but Turn,Turn,Turn and Between The Breaks, and there's nary a peep about anyone but white Anglophones; and Scots/Irish/Brit at that. Just wondering.
