As the ballad index above wrote, "Considered by some to be a variant of "The Brown Girl." The plot is identical except that the male and female roles are reversed. Laws declares that the two should be considered separate but related ballads."

Frankie Armstrong's (and Jon Boden's) The Brown Girl is much more closer to Martin Carthy's which is in the DT as THE BROWN GIRL (2)
