GUEST,George Henderson What murder ballad is the saddest? [songs] (162* d) RE: What murder ballad is the saddest? 28 Aug 16

Prince Heathen is about the saddest I can think of. Just listened to Frankie Armstrong singing it on You Tube.

I assume that she died after the trauma of being dragged through briars etc while tied to the tail of a horse and giving birth at the same time to a child born after a rape. The song does not confirm that though. Nor does it confirm that the child died either but surely neither could have survived.
