    OK, I'll try and start a new one. Song lyrics that are misheard, or lyrical content that is just wrong.


    Credence Clearwater Revival (written by Ledbelly): Cotton Fields

    It was down in Louisiana
    Just a mile from Texarkana

    Sorry, but the Louisiana border is over 20 miles from Texarcana.

    I don't have personal knowledge of this, but I've heard that the following lines of the song are geographically incorrect.

    Well It's a long way to Richmond, rollin' north on 95

    We met at truck stop, Johnson City, Tennessee
