Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Spanish Lady
I know this from the singing of Burl Ives, and it's listed as "Dublin City".

I never could make sense of the counting chorus, but the Wheel of Fortune makes some sense.

The verses with the

"What care I for your gold and silver?
What care I for your house or land?
What care I for your ships on the ocean?
All I want's a nice young man." '

structure reminds me of versions of the "Gypsy Rover"

Thanks for the thoughts on this one
