Subject: RE: Help to identify a folk song-poison berries
There are so many interestingly grisly variations of this song. Jon, now that we've enlightened you, can you find something close to the version you heard, or can you recall any other snippets?
Did you sing a "mother make my bed soon" version?
What was the gist of the story in your song? Did the girlfriend poison him with berries? Did he disinherit her?
