I noticed that in the line, "One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away". Most versions pronounce Salinas (California) SAL LEE' NUS. Lightfoot's version pronounces it "SAL LINE' US (Salina, Kansas is pronounced this way with the exception of the S at the end). Is this just one of GL's weird (or Canadian) pronunciation quirks or did he have his geography mixed up?
