“The Maid of Tardree”


In this confused song, the singer falls in love with a girl, who also says she loves him. But then he falls in love with another girl. But his "first expectations were blighted." He prepares to emigrate


There is no doubt in my mind that this song is damaged somehow. But I can't guess how. - RBW
