Tim Eriksen assembled this song. Listen to his rendition here.
He says (in part, in the cd notes): "I made the tune, and made the words out of scraps, the biggest of which is, again, from Connor. I spent more time trying to write about it than I did recording the whole CD."
"Connor" is Timothy Connor, whom he says was an American imprisoned in Plymouth, England, during the American Revolution, who wrote down a manuscript of favorite popular songs.
He doesn't provide the text, though. You'll have to transcribe that for yourself...
