On the radio progarm Folk on Two Jim Lloyd played a recording on 8th May 1984 of Bill Westaway singing the song. As I remember it the phrasing was different to the way it is normally printed, "lend me your grey mare" is sung on equal length notes, also some of the names were different from what I learnt at primary school.
