Legendary folk singer James Taylor confused his set list at the National Anthem at Game 2 of the World Series last night. Before the game he sang "America the Beautiful" instead of the "Star-Spangled Banner." Taylor was supposed to sing "America the Beautiful" during the seventh inning stretch.

It was only a few words and it might have gone unnoticed, but not in the unforgiving world of Twitter.

Twitter users immediately jumped on the missed lyrics.

One Twitter user joked, "I've seen fire and I've seen rain and at least I know which song is the #nationalanthem."

Another James Taylor fan explained "James Taylor is great and all, but he just made up his own National Anthem."

Not everyone was upset by the World Series faux pas. Some Twitter followers came to the singer's defense. One tweet read "So what if James Taylor messed up? It was still beautiful."

During the seventh inning, James Taylor finally got to lead the baseball fans in singing "America The Beautiful" while survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing stood on the field.

James Taylor was one of the first artists signed to The Beatles' Apple label in the sixties. He went on to win five Grammy awards. He was famously married to singer Carly Simon, with whom he sung the hit "Mockingbird." James Taylor was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.
