Queen of Hearts
Last updated: 11.10.23
I found Queen of Hearts in Songs and Dances of England by Liz Thomson (1982) and had never heard it before. It's a beautiful, doleful, haunting song, relatively short having just three verses with the first being repeated for good measure. The lyrics are somewhat obscure and disjointed.
The feelings are however are quite clear. The singer's love for the departed lover outweighs any amount of wealth and the love and support of the singer's immediate relatives.
