Subject: RE: Chord Req: Four rode by (Ian Tyson)
Hey, Peter, glad to be of help. I met Ian only once but he always seemed to get the facts as right as rhyme would allow. He lives out in that area--Alberta side of the Rockies, but close enough to Kamloops for all that. Threads like this are important because way too much song history is being lost. Canada doesn't have as 'large' a history with bad guys as the US does, but we've had our share of characters. Another that comes to mind is The Mad Trapper. I love history, and so I thank you because the story was/is new to me. Keep well.
