Again, you are probably new to the Mudcat Forum. If you check out the earlier posts in this thread, before posting, you will find an abundance of verse variations and hard information on the source of the original song.
It's an interesting song with an interesting history. It is also a tongue-twisting song which can be fun to sing. And it does have a load of cultural baggage which anyone should be aware of before singing it in a public performance.
