Yes, there is a version by Brain Dewhurst (vocals) on the LP 'The Hunter and The Hunted' (presumably with Tom Tiddlers Ground). I can't recall the tune they used. The Tune used by Harry B. is 'The Earlsdon Calling On Song' (as on 'Frost and Fire' by the watersons).

The song is from Harland and Wilkinsons' Ballads and Songs of Lancashire' "taken from a Manuscript copy supplied by John Higson of Droylsden"
