This episode focuses on Roud 4, "Lord Thomas and Fair Eleanor." (alt. Ellenor, Elendor, Ellinor, Elinor) The lyrics to this song have remained relatively unchanged since it was printed on a Broadside in 1677. Sit tight as Matt does his own re-telling, followed by a brief history, and then digs into the meanings and context of this insane story.
