This song was collected and appears in "Bushes and Briars" ad anthology of Essex folk songs 1979
The notes say also appears in Lucy Broadwood's English County Songs ~ attributed to Warwickshire

If memory serves this a song recorded of "Frank Hinchliffe" from Sheffield on his vynl record

So must have had some currency from before turn of the century late 1800s ~ Bell's of the Peasantry also ~ presumably a broadside ballad
