It's not that unusual to see composed songs listed as traditional. There's a Bill Staines song that Guy Carawan credited as traditional on an album he did, and I once had an argument with a Celtic band who sang "Belfast Mill" as a traditional song. They didn't believe me when I told them that the song was really "Aragon Mill" and that it was written in the 1970s by my friend Si Kahn.
