Yes, Great. El Paso is probably one. Unless of course he is wrong about the wound being fatal.
"Butcher's Boy" is a really interesting one. It, like some of the songs from this family of "Died for Love" songs, is told in the first person switching to a witness at the end. So it does fit, I think.
Thank you Amergin. I wrote a song-study on this group of songs. I'll look through for the others told this way.
Cheers, Joy
