GeoffLawes Origins: Died for Love Sources: PART IV (86* d) RE: Origins: Died for Love Sources: PART IV 30 May 17

Another interesting version of Died for Love is called Silver Dagger, Turtle Dove. It begins.

In Liverpool town where I did dwell,
There lived a maid that I loved right well,
I loved a lot of others too,
And to this maid I proved untrue".

She went into the kitchen to bake some bread,
And into the oven she stuck her head,
But before this girl was dead, alas,
The money ran out on the bloody gas.

It has been recorded by Peta Webb and Ken Hall.

If anyone knows the origins of Silver Dagger, Turtle Dove, which I think is modern, then I would like to know.
