Subject: RE: Origins: Lady Mary / Palace Grand / The Sad So
The original Joan Baez lp liner notes state:"We have no information on this wistful lyric, but from text and tune we would guess that it is an Elizabethan or Jacobean literary treatment of a folk theme, making use of a number of standard ballad lines." Does anyone know of other ballads that use these lines?
