I was watching the Begleys on TV sing ploughing the rocks of bawn, and i wondered how many people have used this tune. or if perhaps, it comes from an earlier source..?

Obviously Dylan used it for I pity the poor immigrant. Also there was that Peggy Seeger song about a woman telling her kids that Dad's over in England building the motorways. I'm sure there must others.

Come my little son by Ewan Maccoll
The tune is similar/same as tramps and hawking lads.
Also recorded by Luke Kelly as come my little son.
Is the tune the same as rocks of Bawn to a faster tempo?
