Hmm, interesting. Elizabeth Stewart's version of Child #10 has the 'Binnorrie' refrain rather than the 'gay and the grinding' and 'bows of London' stuff - but it DOES talk about the king's three archers coming riding by rather than a minstrel/harper figure found in other versions. I suppose that bent strands are the commonality, perhaps.
