Subject: RE: Origins of: Barbara Allen, is there a story ?
"This is probably what really happened with Barbara Allen."
I've never considered the idea that Barbara Allan was about suicide., for me it is the perfect ballad of the despair of unrequited love which is what has made it so popular among so many people for so long - somewhere we've all been at one time or another.
