Thread Name: does anyone know a wife-selling song?
Subject: RE: does anyone know a wife-selling song?
Katherine Briggs had a story about a man who'd sold his wife. On being sold, the wife reached into her dress and pulled out a bag of money. As it was part of her clothing, it went with her. While her ex husband was serenaded with "Oh Mr. Smith, you are a cure! You sold your wife and you live on Cuckold's Moor."
