If you were ever depending on song lyrics to get somewhere, you better think again. Here are two examples that could have you way off course. 1. In the song "Them Old Cotton Fields Back Home" one of the lyrics says, and I quote, "it was down in Louisiana, just about a mile from Texarkana." If you look it up in an atlas, you will see Texarkana is at least fifty miles from the Louisiana border. 2. In the song "Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves" by Cher, one of the lyrics says "met a boy just south of Mobile, gave him a ride, filled him with a hot meal." Mobile is on the Gulf of Mexico, so are they saying the gypsies took their wagon out into the middle of the Gulf to meet her boyfriend? This must stop. If you can think of any other examples, it would be great for you to shed some light on them.
