Wow! Even found Max Dunbar singing it on YouTube (1956 recording). Sounds like this could be the other traditional tune given in Bronson. If so we have examples of all 3 tunes if I've got this right. That still doesn't tell us who put the newer tune to it though. Must be prior to 1969. Did MacColl or Lloyd record it?
