dulcimer42 Lyr Req: Lovely Agnes / Lovely Alice (Sally Rogers (6) Folklore: Story behind 'Lovely Agnes' 22 Jul 09


Several years ago, I heard the story behind Sally Rogers' song, "Lovely Agnes."   Something like, an educated young lady going across Lake Michigan with her lover, to live on a farm... much against her parents' wishes.   Does anyone know the whole story, who this was about, etc.    I like to share the story behind songs I sing, and just can't recall the details about this one. Thanks for your help.
