I learned this song from John Roberts and Tony Barrand. They said they learned it from Frank Warner and they learned it wrong. I've done it wrong now for about thirty years and I won't be changing it anytime soon. The version the Fables do is so similar to mine as to be nearly identical.
There is also a version in the Lomax Book of Folk Somgs of Morth America as pointed out by Joe..
