This came up in the Warhorse thread.
Interest was expressed but no one had the full lyric.
It is referred to in connection with the TV series Sharpe's Challenge, but I do not remember hearing it.
Anyone know more?

Indeed, gives the following information in the soundtrack listing for "Sharpe's Challenge":

Adapted by John Tams
Performed by John Tams

Here's John Tams' web site. Unfortunately, I can't find any reference there to the song or to "Sharpe's Challenge."

If it's truly traditional, we ought to be able to find other versions of it, but I have failed to find anything. Do you suppose he took a traditional tune and gave it lyrics and a new title?

Apparently there is a DVD available.
