Thread Name: Why Is the Lady of Carlisle Speechless?
Subject: RE: Why Is the Lady of Carlisle Speechless?
Malcolm...Great background on a song I've always loved, but have only heard in the broad country vernacular (the ending..."She throwed herseff acrost his boosum, sahn heer's the prahze thet yew have won")

Was especially interested in the info that lions were kept at the Tower at one time...makes more sense, as lions are thin on the ground in US Eastern hill country (painters, yes, but no real lions).

Thanks for taking the time to explicate!
