Thread Name: Richard Farina's 'Morgan The Pirate'
Subject: Richard Farina's 'Morgan The Pirate'
This is a wonderful song as noted in several Mudcat threads.

It is also rather pointed in its lyrics - Farina was obviously very pissed off with "Morgan".

Does anybody know the background here? Who was the song directed at / written about ? What was the issue that culminated in the song ?

I have wondered off and on about this for some thirty years now.
