How 'bout just weird concepts within folksongs? (driftdrift).

I think my favorite is one the renfaire group I'm with does... We call it "Devon Sailor", about a young man who goes to sea and is waylaid by a girl in Dublin, and then spends the next twenty years trying to get home - TO DEVON. That's what... 40 miles? Even if it's 400 miles, we're all of the opinion that the guy's just not trying very hard.
