Looking for song with first verse:

It was early one morning just by the break of day
I went to dear Polly, these words I did say,
'Arise, my pretty Polly, and go along with me,
before we get married, our parents to see'.

Any help from you wonderfully knowledgeable 'catters would be appreciated. I need full source details please.
Alan

"The Outlandish Knight;" www.celticlyricscorner.net

"Pretty Polly," www.bluegrasslyrics.com

So many variants it is hard to summarize.

(Your first verse is often the second or third)

See remarks by Malcolm Douglas, Lyr. Add: Pretty Polly (#311), thread 39679

"The Ship's Carpenter"
Lovely English version of this from the singing of East Anglian fisherman Sam Larner "The Ghost Ship" - wonderfful tune
