Subject: RE: Jesse Winchester
My friend has visited all 48 contiguous states, but I've never been to Tennessee. However, I believe waltzing's popular there.

An earlier message reads;
"...literally waltzing on air..." in Brand New Tennessee Waltz - the pedant in me has always wondered why he used the word "literally"? Assume that JW deliberately included it, not used the word loosely, but even after all these years I can't figure it.

I'm happy to agree that Jesse used the word deliberately and I think that there must have been a reason. If that's a particularly arrogant view, then I apologise. Others think that he's just used the word for convenience. I'm sure we can agree to differ.
