Creedence Clearwater Revival's, "Cotton Fields"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
As submitted 'It was down in Louisiana, Just about a mile from Texarkana.' but really, 'It was down in Louisiana, Just about a HOUR from Texarkana.
Why They're Inappropriate:
In response to a posting by Meredith Corpening about 'Cotton Fields' lyrics being inappropriate because of the perceived geographical gaffe about Texarkana being at it's closest 30 miles, I think there is some ambiguity in the interpretation of the lyrics that allows for 'HOUR' instead of 'MILE'. Tekarkana might be an HOUR from Louisiana, even if clearly it's not a mile. Thus, the lyrics are not as inappropriate as they seem.
