There's a provisional transcription at Reinhard Zierke's Watersons site: Poor Boney. Watch out for the mondegreens, though. The difficulty over "awful pall tune", or whatever it originally was, goes back nearly a hundred years; Vaughan Williams wasn't entirely sure what Henry Burstow had sung, and printed it as "awful paltune", with a query.

From the look of it, it's an arrangement of the same set, as mediated by Stradling and/or Harte.
