Steeleye Span recorded an arrangement of the traditional version noted by Ralph Vaughan Williams from Mr. Hilton of South Walsham, Norfolk, in 1908. I believe that I sent a midi of the tune as published in The Journal of the Folk Song Society (vol.IV, issue 15, 1910) to Mudcat MIDIs nearly a year ago, but it doesn't seem to have been added. Here it is in abc format. You can convert it to midi or staff notation at Concertina.net. You'll need to remember to remove the spaces that will appear at the beginning of each line if you copy-and-paste it from here.

Steeleye Span changed a note or two, and altered the rhythm, so this is a bit different from their recording; but it is authentic. I think that their recording was transcribed in the first "Steeleye Span Songbook", probably with suggested guitar chords, but that's long out of print. Perhaps someone round here has it and can help you more specifically.

there is a re-issue of the Frankie Armstrong CD ' Lovely On The Water '

She does a great version of it.
