Subject: RE: Sheepcrook & Black Dog
It's a fairly common song, turning up mainly in England, N Ireland and Canada. The version in question was collected by Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger about 1963 from Caroline Hughes of Dorset.
For other versions consult Steve Roud's Folk Song sand Broadside Indexes at http://library.efdss.org/cgi-bin/textpage.cgi?file=aboutRoud&access=off .
