Subject: RE: Origins: Songs about women killing men
Willie in The Mother's Malison was killed by his mother who cursed him because he wouldn't stay with her that night.
Well, no he wasn't. He was killed by his girlfriend Maggie who forced him to recross the river instead of staying with her.
Well, no he wasn't. It turns out that it was Maggie's mother pretending to be Maggie.
So that's three women did for him! Or not, in case I get accused of trying to guilt trip them. Obviously he was killed by the river. Which was male. ... because its name was Clyde Swaters!
