Thread Name: Origins:Matilda [Mathilda](King Radio/Norman Span)
Subject: Origins: Matilda- similar songs?
I don't know if I am allowed to create a new thread for this, but can anyone give me examples of trad. songs with similar themes to "Matilda" or "Matilda, Matilda" by King Radio, which is sung from the perspective of a man robbed and left high and dry by his lover, who leaves for Venezuela? Caribbean/West Indian folk songs would be preferable.
