reasons to think hew wrote it? Well I don't know whether the book it is published in is a book of collected trad songs or also includes his own work, plus he wrote similar songs. I also know how frequently composed works get attributed to 'Trad', I can only imagine this is even more common when they are published initially in a language not spoken by many of the people who perform the song.
