Chad & Jeremy's, "Willow Weep for Me"
Misheard Lyrics:
Banjo branches green along the stream that runs to sea
(Later)
Banjo branches down along the ground and cover me
Original Lyrics:
Bend your branches green along the stream that runs to sea
(Later)
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
During the final chorus, the chord modulates from Emaj7 to Fmaj7, making the song much sadder. IMO, this is the saddest Chad & Jeremy song I've ever heard in my whole life, even sadder than "A Summer Song."
Chad & Jeremy's, "Willow Weep for Me"
Misheard Lyrics:
Leave my heart a-breakin' and makin' a mom
Original Lyrics:
Leave my heart a-breakin' and makin' a moan
Chad & Jeremy's, "Willow Weep for Me"
Misheard Lyrics:
Mama to the night to hide her starry light
Original Lyrics:
Murmur to the night to hide her starry light
Chad & Jeremy's, "Willow Weep for Me"
Misheard Lyrics:
Widow weep for me (2x)
Original Lyrics:
Willow weep for me (2x)
A married woman whose husband has died and who hasn't remarried is a widow, and most women do weep when their husbands die, so I guess the misheard lyrics would make sense.
