Nic and the Halliard recorded the song. Mike Raven has recently re-released the album on CD. If you search on Mike's Nic Jones discography, it gives details of how to obtain the CD from Mr. Raven himself.

According to the sleeve notes, Nic took the lyrics directly from the "Victorian Street Ballads" book and wrote the tune. Wearing one of my vast collection of anoraks, I found a copy of the book and, yes, the lyrics are there.

Nic did the same with "Going for a soldier Jenny", from the same book.
