Thread Name: Harris and the Mare - murder or not?
Subject: Harris and Mare - murder or not?
In Stan Rogers 'Harris and the Mare' the narrator admits his wife throws the first blow. The victim lashes out to defend himself and is then attacked by the narrator.

I love this song but cannot get my mind around the innocent narrator bit.

Is this why the neighbours did not lend a hand?

What do others think?
