Thread Name: Strawberry Roan - ( & Sheepherder version?)
Subject: RE: Strawberry Roan - Sheepherder version?
Along the same line, Toby Hughes, of In Country fame, did a song titled "Tchepone" (click), a VN War update, which is in the Database. In this case, a bored fighter pilot gets suckered in to flying a bomb run over Tchepone, which is SUPPOSED to be a quiet peaceful town just north of the DMZ.

Unfortunately the town, small though it was, was thoroughly protected by antiaircraft artillery and rockets of all shapes and descriptions, and he gets pretty thoroughly hosed.

The town's name is pronounced as if the initial "T" were abent, Chee' pone.
