The Fair Maid of Astolat

The Fair Maid of Astolat Based on Tennyson’s Lady of Shalott– well and on Malory’s Morte d’Arthur and stuff like that – this song is about a hapless young girl who fell in love with Sir Lancelot (remember, he was in love with King Arthur’s wife Guinivere). It didn’t do her much good.
