Five Precepts Blues; #1.7 - the wrong attitude

 Judy's own commentary on these songs is as priceless as her voice.

The first one is "a folk song that dates back to the Appalachian Mountains" about a girl "who found herself in a situation from which she could not extract herself easily, except by marrying her boyfriend who was also involved in the situation." Unfortunately, the boyfriend had other plans...

The second is an old Scottish ballad, about a girl who, "really had the wrong attitude about a lot of things" as Judy puts it. No matter how many times I listen to the second song, her voice gives me chills!

Both songs are from the same album, but I decided to use a different image for the first one. The second is the original cover. Both songs also poke fun at some old headache medicine commercials (Mother, please! I'd rather do it myself!), anyone who grew up during the 60's might remember!
