Ascending is how I know it, & as sung by my Grandma who claimed to be three quarters English, half Irish and part Flemish (she was a large lady).
FWIW the 1951 Penguin Songbook also shows ascending notes, but gives no source information.
I've not heard of anyone driving a barrow before, might it not fall over?
