The tune that Jon Raven fitted to it on 'Kate of Coalbrookdale is quite rollicking and described in his note as 'music-hallese' as he believed it 'to be a true son of the late Industrial Revolution'. The tune he used several years later on the 'Ballad of the Black Country' is much more deliberate and traditional-sounding and, as Anglo mentioned, noted as adapted from one of the 'Outlandish Knight' melodies.
