Hell, I remember Dyer-Bennet singing this song at a concert at Bowdoin College in the early 1950's. His major recordings have been re-released from Smithsonian-Folkways Recordings. My mother says he also composed the final verse to "The Keeper of the Eddystone Light," the verse where the mermaid shouts "To hell with the keeper of the Eddystone Light!"
