Thread Name: ballad - she pushes him into the river
Subject: ballad - she pushes him into the river
A friend of mine has the following request for a radio show.
The song I'm looking for is a turnabout song. It's a version of Pretty Polly/Knoxville Girl (although I think the title's different) where the guy announces he's going to murder the girl; she asks him to turn around so as to not to see her get undressed; and then she pushes him into the river.
My friend has a recording of this somewhere in her vast collection, so that means it's fairly recent. I have sent an e-mail asking if the singer was American or British. I'll post that info here.
Meanwhile, any ideas?
