Thread Name: ADD: Poor Man's Daughter (Buffy Sainte-Marie)
Subject: Lyr Req: Only a fragment
I've got a song fragment lodged in my head, perhaps I can excavate enough for someone to identify it.

Female singer (thought it was Buffy Sainte-Marie)
60's-70's, might be a bit later.

Story of a woman being sent to her husband to be, her carriage wrecks and, here is the verse I've got

"Strong and handsome was the one who helped me
Right my carriage and be on my way"

In the end she leaves the rich man and goes back to the poor one.

Can someone help me, Please
