Subject: RE: Wife of a Soldier (Brecht)
Steeleye Span got the song from Martin Carthy, and it looks as if "County Down" (I'm afraid I've never heard of them) did too. Carthy mentioned having picked it up from Isla Cameron and Johnny Scott; which is as far back as we can probably go without asking them where they had it from.
