Brilliant!

The following year, Radio Wales despatched Huw Williams to the Rock Island Line.

Folk song?   By some definitions, maybe, but written in the thirties by IDRIS DAVIES, the great Welsh poet, who had a strong Welsh background.

To avoid any misapprehension, Pete Seeger's contribution was to set it to music- i'm sure he would never have claimed authorship and trust no-one else has- IMHO the best version I ever heard was by Ian Campbell.

I'm partial to the recording by The Mitchell Trio.
