Malcolm, thanks for the info and the link. You've given me a "jumping-off place," so to speak. The link especially was a huge help; the Watersons and Carthys both tend to find these severely truncated versions of songs that leave half the story out, and one has to guess at the plot or character's reasoning. It was nice to see the elongated version of the same tale. :-)
