(After an unrelated opening stanza), we find Sarah Jane and Samuel courting on the D & H canal. He, however "succumbed to hard times" and is buried. As for Sarah, within a week "She started keeping comp'ny with a junk dealer... in Rondout."
Not to be confused with the song we index as "Sara Jane," which is a humorous song of conflict between lovers. - RBW
