A traditional folk song about a married lady who runs off from her lord, leaving her wealthy life behind to join the gypsy life.
There is a small instrumental melody line which is played as intro and repeated a few times throughout the song. There are some fine well known recordings of this song from Planxty and The Dubliners. I took this version of Derek Ryan as a basis. The transcription of the melody line can be found after the lyrics in the below document.
