An old murder ballad. There are a great number of murder ballads, Little Sadie, Banks of the Ohio, Knoxville Girl etc. Many can be traced way back in time. Knoxville Girl for instance can be traced to the British Isles way back in the 1600'th. In most of the songs, there are no reason mentioned whatsoever, as to why the young man kills his sweeatheart. In Willow Garden there is a kind of reason. Not a good one, but at least a reason.

Hey Jesper!  You sing really well in English.  It's hard to believe that you are Danish.
