I learnt this from hearing the Elliots a long time ago (and was privileged to sing it with them in the Plough during Whitby Folk Week last year), but being Middlesex born and bred I am stunned to learn from Malcolm that Cecil Sharp found a Middlesex version, since Middlesex (to the extent that it still exists at all) is entirely landlocked.
