“The Jim Ross Song”


Ross, "an elderly gent" courts Mary Ann, "the pride of Dundas," offering "houses and lands" because he has little money. She agrees to marry but does not appear for the wedding. She explains why she changed her mind [the song breaks here].


Dundas is near the east coast of Kings, Prince Edward Island. - BS
