Subject: RE: Origins: Sae Will We Yet / So Will We Yet
Here's the text of AND SAE WILL WE YET in The Ulverston New Poetical Miscellany, (Ulverston: G. Ashburner, 1812), page 184, which is the earliest publication date I can find, and agrees with the information in the Traditional Ballad Index. The text is very nearly the same as that posted by Joe Offer above from Ord's Bothy Songs and Ballads, ignoring some differences in spelling.
