The version in the Digital Tradition is no doubt the version collected by A.L. Lloyd from T. Cowdray.
The Roud Index says the Lloyd/Cowdray version appears in
Seeger & MacColl, Singing Island (1960) p.59
Buchan & Hall, Scottish Folksinger (1973) p.98
I compared the DT version with Buchan & Hall - looks like the DT transcription is quite accurate.
