Re: Other Lyric Changes In Lightfoot Songs

Exactly, Bob - the revised version is actually better, I think:
"At 7pm it grew dark, it was then, he said, ‘Fellas it's been good to know ya.'”

Lightfoot Article With Lyrics
Lightfoot wasn't afraid to change lyrics in hit songs. I also believe he changed the "At 7pm, a main hatchway caved in" at the request of two Fitz surviving families that may have laid blame of the wreck on their loved ones. Also changed in If You Could Read My Mind from "the feelings that you lack" to "the feelings that we lack" at the request of his daughter.
