dulcimer Origins: The Rose of Allendale / Allandale (47) RE: The Rose of Allendale 27 Dec 00

I guess the song could be about a ship. Certainly lyrics suggest that. But could it not equally be read as a song about a maid who accompanied her soldier lover? Wasn't this a common practice of the period? I have not great resource for this interpretation. Just wondering.
