Might as well mention that there are at least two well-known tunes, one major, the other modal. The former is sung by Delia Murphy, IIRC. The latter is that given by O Lochlainn in "Irish Street Ballads." It was used by Ewan MacColl for his song beginning, "I am a wagon-driver, boys, Bill Healey is my name."
