Thread Name: Origins: Spanish Lady, et al
Subject: RE: Origins: Spanish Lady, et al
I have a lovely version of Spanish Lady by Theo Bikel of all people, and it isn't about a spanish lady as much as about a lovely woman washing her feet... She had 20 18 16 14, 12 10 8 6 4 2 none, she had 19 17 15 13, 11 9 7 5 3 and 1. Round and round the wheel of fortune, where she stops it wearies (worries?) me / fair young girls are all deceiving / sad experience teaches me...

Also the Clancy Bros say that their Galway City is directly based on Spanish Lady. Not sure on which album they explain that.
