Jack White

I have noticed that Jack White sometimes sings songs that were written in the first person by women but does not change the words to the masculine. This is true for Black Jack Davey and Jolene.

I have also noticed that he does change the lyrics of a first person song written by a man, to insert his name in the lyrics instead of the songwriter's.  He does this with “Talkin’ to Myself” by Blind Willie McTell.

I find this odd.

This is a real thing.
