Thread Name: Banks of Green Willow
Subject: Banks of Green Willow
In the song, Banks of Green Willow, the mother and child are thrown overboard from the ship and "she will swim until she reaches the Banks of Green Willow".

I assume that the Banks of Green Willow is a mythical haven where sailors and others lost at sea go when they die - but am I right? Any ideas?
