Thread Name: Pentangle's House Carpenter
Subject: RE: Pentangle's House Carpenter
Many, many American versions of that song. Pentangle didn't bother to say where they they got their songs from, generally, but there's a decent chance of identifying it with patience. They probably learned it off a record made by an American revival performer, though (people like Caroline Hester), which might slow things down; and they did sometimes re-write a bit.
