Just for the record, this song, from the the Kipper Family, is in fact entitled Big Musgrave and the tune, is a significant variant of Fairport's.
The Kipper Family songs usually "parody" both the words and music of their "targets", and cannot always be sung to the original tunes, though in this case the original metre remains unchanged.
