GUEST,Wm 'Wild Goose Shanty (Ranzo)' background (20) RE: 'Wild Goose Shanty (Ranzo)' background 17 May 22

While Lloyd's first recording of this song appeared on Blow, Boys, Blow appeared in 1957, Ewan Maccoll was singing it as early as 1953. In this recording hosted at Tobar an Dualchais/Kist o Riches, he performs the text as given in Mackenzie (though substituting "them pretty girls" for "the young girls" in the second solo line). If nothing else, it's interesting to hear a Revival recording that predates Lloyd's now-standard elaborations.
