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.

Modern Day Bonnie And Clyde

by Travis Tritt

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

Truck Yeah by Tim McGraw

"Friday Night Football, Saturday Last Call, Sunday Hallelujah"

I always heard it as Saturday NASCAR, which never made sense to me since most are on sunday.

From U2's "Pride (In the Name of Love) a song about Martin Luther King

Early morning, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky

King was actually shot just after 6 PM.

... Blinding by the light,
wrapped up like a DOUCHE
another RUNNY one in the night
Blinded by the light
She got down but she never got tired
She's gonna make it through the night
She's going make it through the night
BUTT mama that's were the fun is

(by the way Randy Messiner sp? did the vocals, one their few big ones without Frey or Henley doing the lead vocals)
