It's on Ryan's Fancy "Live", now happily released on CD. It's not on the Back Porch catalogue but they can get it for you for about twenty bucks Canadian.

When I lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia the song was a popular one with the bar bands.

There is a Yarmouth in Nova Scotia, and one or more in New England, but I think the original one in England is the one referred to in the song.
