That good ship and true was a bone to be chewed.

The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald, the song doesn’t follow the usual rhyming schemes. Until today I didn’t know there were rhyming schemes like AAAA, ABAB and XXXX.

I like how Gordon Lightfoot used “true” when most would have used crew. He had a similar line  later.

The lake it is said, never gives up her dead.This song must be using XXXX and ABAB along with no rhyming at all.

There are sites like “enhance your song writing with rhyming schemes.” that do a pretty good job explaining rhyming   terms.

The song is interesting and has simple chords. There are numerous YouTube lessons, I found a good one on strumming the song, you might check out a few for yourself.A good beginner strumming song.
