Subject: RE: Dear Jean - CD tribute to Jean Ritchie
The second line of that song sounds like "Tucky's my home". Is that an authentic variant of "Kentucky" or is it an instance of the common phenomenon of a singer forgetting to turn the voice on at the beginning of a line? Jean herself clearly sings "Kentucky".
