Thanks for the reminder of this song. It was recorded by Edith Fowke from the singing of Clyde Gilmour, and issued by Leader records on an LP 'Far Canadian Fields' LEE 057 in 1975. There have been lots of discussions here on Mudcat, and elsewhere, about the fate of the Leader label so you can look those up if you wish.
I'm delighted to know the song is still around. I have only ever heard it sung once in all these years by John Bentham.
