Good grief.

Actually, it wasn't the countess who stabbed Earl Richard (that's Love Henry to all you Murkans) but his lover.

Story went like this: bloke comes round and 'turls at the pin' (rings doorbell).
Bit on side says: 'You coming in? Fire's on, candles are lit'.
He thinks for a moment and says: 'Nah. I'm going home to the wife.
She stabs him and puts him down well/into River Clyde.

One of the longest versions is on Tony Rose's Young Hunting (LER 2013 1970).
I'm sure you don't need three guesses to get why you can't hear it.
