Subject: RE: Lyr Req: River and the Road (Archie Fisher)
Thanks for clearing up my mis-hearing a lyric. It's downright embarrassing if you wind up singing the wrong words with conviction, and then find out you committed a mondegreen. I thought "leave" gave the line a metaphysical twist. But "need" does as well. As an English Major in college I used to think some professors over analysed some phrases. Now, here I am over thinking as well.
