Trying something a little different with this old ballad. In the older versions the narrator is a ship's carpenter who gets Polly pregnant and then decides he doesn't care for her that much. After doing her in, he's haunted by her spirit, goes crazy, and offs himself, too. There are many versions, some switching like this one from first to third person, and others have other reasons why our narrator changes his mind about love. I like the story, even though it always ends about the same way, and just watching me fudge my way through playing wasn't so entertaining, so I've tried to only grab images that weren't specifically stated as copy write, but I might have missed the mark. Anyway, in that spirit I consider this work creative commons, freely re-mixed or distributed for non-commercial use.
