Subject: RE: Origins: Lady Mary / Palace Grand / The Sad Song
It's amazing how changing one word can alter the whole song.

The version I know says: There, in HER garden she stands, all dressed in white satin and lace, LADY MARY so proud and COLD...etc

Someone observed that this could be referring to the Virgin Mary, a statue.
Sounds far fetched to me.
