Gordon Lightfoot has changed some of the lyrics to his epic "Edmund Fitzgerald."
Apparently singing about the main hatchway caving in somehow implied that the crew failed to secure the hatchway and caused their own death. He has now replaced that lyric with "At 7 p.m., it grew dark, it was then he said, 'Fellas it's been good to know ya."
Apparently some of the deckhands' families are very pleased. Honestly, I never even thought about it...I figured they were sinking, of COURSE the hatchway would cave in.
