Most oral versions as you would expect derive directly from the 2 main broadsides but a few N American versions have remnants seemingly that hark back to the longer 18thc version as we have seen with other ballads. I'll flag these up tomorrow.

All of the published 'Do me Ama' versions seem to derive from Whall.
