Her Mantle So Green
Is, was, played by Sinead O’Connor, this song has its origins in the 19th century and was passed down through this time and before and it speaks of how women remained
faithful to their husbands or lovers when they were sent to war.
To all those that don’t know the song I’ll post.
The song :
A male cover :
A female cover
And why not, the melody itself =)
My question is this, if you search the lyrics of the song, the lady ” Nancy ” awaits “William O’Reilly” her lover that went to Waterloo
but is this man really William or not, the one that shows in front of her and asks for her hand?
What do you think?
