Is is indeed Jim C singing this particular version.
Quite a few of the verses where written specifically for that recording. (Naturally in the traditional way after a few pints in the pub.)
And actually, if you think about it, that's probably how a lot of the intro chants/sung verses that Morris sides use originated!.
It's certainly worth a listen, and there's some great brass playing on it too!
