TinkerandCrab Love songs with happy endings? (40) RE: Love songs with happy endings? 08 Apr 06


Yeah, the version of Geordie that ends happily is the one that June Tabor sings on "Silly Sisters"

"He clasped her by the middle small
And he kissed her lips so rosy
The fairest flower of womankind
Is my sweet bonny lady."

(Tell you the truth, that's the only version of Geordie that I'm familiar with... never heard the one with the hanging.)

A big favorite of mine of the happy-ending ilk is one of those cross-dressing hijinks songs: "Jack-A-Roe". Not just happy, hopeful!

"This couple they got married, so well did they agree...
This couple they got married, so why not you and me?"

:sigh: Maybe I should try dressing up like a soldier to woo the laddies... ;^)
