Cover of Ballads and Mental Breakdowns

From Ballads and Mental Breakdowns and 1 other release

Based on versions by John Hammond, B.F. Shelton and Dock Boggs. Most versions begin in the first person and switch to the third person, this one stays in the first person. Unlike most American versions, Polly re-appears at the end to take her revenge (British versions all included Willie the murderer getting killed by Polly’s ghost).
