WyoWoman Changing Traditional Lyrics (37) RE: Changing Traditional Lyrics 07 Jul 02

I change lyrics relatiely frequently, to the chagrin of a couple of my purist friends. For instance, "East Virginia," I change to "there I met a fair young fella ..." and so forth. I try to sing from my heart as much as my voice, and it's hard for me to jump over the gender barrier and sing as though I were a man. But at least I 'fess up that i've monkeyed with the lyrics ... Does that make it better? So if someone is "collecting" a song I'm singing, they'll know it's a little bastard and they probably need to go to a purer source ...
