I learned this song when I was a kid growing up in the Ozarks. It was always very popular there. I later found a very similer version in "The Ballad Book of John Jacob Niles"c1960. Library of Congress Catl. card # 60-1002. He has it listed as Child #84 "Bonny Barbara Allen", and Niles # 36A "Barb'ry Ellen" (the name I learned it by), and Niles # 36A "Barbara Allen"
