So many people have performed this song and I love it myself. I was wondering just why it is so special to so many people.

A haunting melody and some nice memorable phrases that folks can relate to .
We performed it unrehearsed with Guanjo vocal and mouthie(harp) at local pub session to "unfolky" folks and got great unnexpected applause.

I think the lyrics were cobbled together arounf the end of WWI. But the melody is much older.
