SouthernCelt Question about 'Lady of Carlisle' (18) RE: Question about 'Lady of Carlisle' 18 Sep 07

Well, Janine, I wouldn't judge songs about customs from long ago by any of today's standards (or any of the twentieth century for that matter); however, the fun of folk music is that if you want the Lt. to slap her and leave, you can make up a version that has him do that. I always figured that her attraction must have been her wealth rather than her looks. In effect, that's what the version posted above (Bold Lieutenant 1)implies since it refers to her suitors being interested in her estates, etc.
