Things have moved on since Malcolm mentioned only two known versions collected from the tradition: now there are at least five.

Martin & Shan Graebe recorded a version on their 2005 CD Parallel Strands under the title Maiden under Willlow. This is a collation of two versions collected by Baring Gould in 1890/91.

There is also a version collected in Newfoundland under the name of "AS I WALKED FORTH IN THE PRIDE OF THE SEASON", No.9785 in the Roud index, which both Mary Humphreys and Jack Crawford have recorded in Britain.
