And we are coming to the last songs

 I probably already bored you with stories about old songs. But just a little remains. Now let's talk about the second-to-last ballad of The Grenadier And The Lady. 

Not enough information was found about this song. I can only say that it tells about a girl and a soldier who didn’t want to marry her, because he already has a wife in his native land. The song is sad and lyrical. And it was written in the 17th century. There are many versions of its text, although each lyrics have the same melody, but there are also several names. It’s believed that the ballad was folded in England, and today it’s considered one of the saddest old-time songs.
