Greed and Gold

Album: Poor Man's Heaven (2008)
  • songfacts ®
  • Seth Lakeman told the Daily Mirror July 3, 2008 about this track: "We did it in one take. It's a ghostly story about a rich lady, Lady Howard from Tavistock, coming to visit a guy who makes love to her, takes her money and kills her. But she haunts him for the rest of his life. I've got a fascination for a good story. I always have a good narrative. I do research, but I'm not always bound by facts. I just like a good story - whether it's true or not."
