'Tis the nature of Folk Music now & in the past & probably the future , to take established tunes & lyrics & meld them into a local tradition or story. Robert Burns never wrote an original tune in his whole prolific life !! Enjoy it all & if the need takes you, change what you already know, to that which will amuse/entertain your audience/friends. THAT IS FOLK MUSIC !!!( The telling of tales )
