Didn't Joan Baez do a tune called Jack-A-Roe?

a search for Jack Monroe gets 4 songs, two of which you want. These are labeled DT #331 and Laws N7. A search for #331 or N7 gets 4 versions. See Malcolm Laws discussion of N7.

I know that Edna Ritchie (Jean's sister) sings this on her Folk Legacy recording. It's not on CD but I suspect Sandy and Carine Paton still have many things on vinyl. I'm sure they could make a cassette for you too.

Jean probably does the song too.

They do have a nice website but I can't recall it right now.

I am looking for any info on the origins and development of the song "Jack the Sailor", also known as "Jack Monroe", "Love of Polly and Jack Monroe", "Jack-A-Roe", "Jacky Frazier", etc. Is it based on a true story? Who has performed and recorded it through the years?
