    I've always loved this song. (I live in the Great Lakes area and work at a steel mill, so yeah, we all know the tale...) :)

    I'm a Death Metal fan for the most part, but when Mr. Lightfoot is on the radio.... We all shut up and listen to a lyrical genius! Seriously, no joke, the man and his music are amazing!

    Of course the melody is "redundant" it sets the tone for what is a seeming poem with music accompanying it. I believe she took water plunged her bow and split abeam when her nose tried to pull up.
