Guest - As with many traditional songs, no-one can say where it came from or who composed it. It was published throughout the 19th century by broadside sellers in both England and Wales but hardly anywhere else. The best-known version (the one mostly talked about here) has been sung by successive generations of the Copper family of Sussex.
