Thread Name: Lyr Req: Roseville Fair (Les Barker's parody)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Roseville Faire: Les Barker's added
Re: the Roseville in the song, I heard Bill Staines say in concert once that he picked that name because there were so many Rosevilles, and that rather than writing the song about a specific town he wanted it to be widely applicable.
Until I heard that, of course, I thought it was about Roseville, MN!
