Which tune? There are 3 in JFSS, 7, pp. 102-3, 1905. There's a broadside copy on the Bodley Ballads website. Search on 'Basket'.

Note similarity of plot to "The Oyster Girl/Basket of Oysters" in DT. Tunes from late 18th century for it are noted in the Irish tune index on my website. Strange tune, some versions being half "Greensleevs" and half "Johnny McGill".

The tune in 'The Penguin Book of English Folksongs' is the 2nd of those in JFSS, 7, with key changed from Em.
