Cheers, Peace, for providing the first link.
My suspicion that the song I heard was one strand of a 'variations on a theme' selection is confirmed by the George Smith poem having some lines in common while telling a different story. I wonder if there is, or ever was, an 'original' or 'definitive' version which spawned imitators. Some Mudcatter must have the lowdown stashed away in his/her head, notebook or pc.
