Thanks for sharing these songs, Jim.

The Cowboy Shot in Long North is fascinating. Where is Long North, and do they have 'cowboys' there? Is it in or near Tipperary? Also, the mention of writing to his mother and his sister, in the context of widespread traveller non-literacy, jumped out at me.

The first one reminds me a bit of the Sarah Wilson songs, about jilted/disappointed women.

Just informal thoughts, not advancing any theory here.

Thanks again.
