Ah; he made it up, then.  That's all I wanted to know.  Where traditional songs are concerned, I think it's important that people do not tell lies about their provenance, as it confuses the issue.  You have to remember that these are not just songs; they are also a part of our common heritage, and of our history.  They do not belong to individuals.  Deliberately to falsify historical evidence is to defraud us, and our children, of their rightful inheritance; which, above all else, should be the truth.
