Thread Name: Folk Music for the Middle Class
Subject: RE: Folklore: Folk Music for the Middle Class
Just recently I finished a song that included a refrain line about riding a horse: "I want to take an Appaloosa, baby, and ride out in the rain, when I cannot sleep at night." I have never been on a horse in my life. I've eaten horse meat and seen horses, gave first aid to a horse after a vehicle crash, even fed a horse. But I've never ridden one. If anyone figures that deceitful or bad of me because I am not a working cowboy--tough. (It's a good song, btw.)
