vectis, yours is more or less the version the Corries sing, apart from leaving out the eight lines before the last four, reducing the verses to three. Three discrepancies, though: I hear them singing "My decent man ..."; it is the copper, not "me" who catches his death of cold, and he goes on show after that in the Kelvingrove Museum (and Art Galleries), Glasgow.
