And Midchuck, the Edmund Fitzgerald was a God Damned true story that happened the year he wrote the song. Lightfoot wrote a classic shipwreck ballad about a contemporary tragedy, and made millions of people feel the experience that took 29 lives. I think that's what God Damned folksingers are supposed to do, we should all hope to do so well.

Yeah, but...it sounds like it's all in one chord, even though it isn't.

And it's been overdone. I just got sick of it a long time ago. That's all.
