indeed, Lighter...I suspected something like that might be involved when I saw a couple of different spellings in Scottish songbooks and Child....and when those spelling/pronunciations are mixed within a version by others attempting to make sense of it, it gets worse.
anyway, looks like there is enough info now to sing a passable version and explain it to an audience..
