Subject: RE: Req:Additional verses for Banks of Sweet Primroses
Whether that last line is back to front in the traditional version depends on whether the "I" in that last verse is the man or the woman.

If it's the young woman in question, surely it means that she's rallied her spirits, and now has come to recognise that to lose a false young man like that isn't the end of the world, it's a blessing in disguise.
