Beside the set from Colm O Lochlainn's Irish Street Ballads mentioned above, see this earlier discussion:  Need Lyrics for "The Maid Who Sold her Barley

There are several broadside examples at Bodleian Library Broadside Ballads:

The maid that sold her barley

The original song by Thomas D'Urfey (1688) is in the DT:  COLD AND RAW (The Farmers Daughter)

Broadsides:

The Northern ditty; or the Scotchman outwitted by a country damsel

What is a Barley-Deanta, and why did she sell it?

THE MAID WHO SOLD HER BARLEY


It's cold and raw, the north winds blow
Black in the morning early
When all the hills were covered with snow
Oh then it was winter fairly
As I was riding o'er the moor
I met a farmer's daughter
Her cherry cheeks and coal-black hair
They caused my heart to falter

I bowed my bonnet very low
To let her know my meaning
She answered with a courteous smile
Her looks they were engaging
"Where are you bound my pretty maid
It's now in the morning early?"
The answer that she gave to me
"Kind sir, to sell my barley"

"Now twenty guineas I've in my purse
And twenty more that's yearly
You need not go to the market town
For I'll buy all your barley
If twenty guineas would gain the heart
Of the maid I love so dearly
All for to tarry with me one night
And go home in the morning early"

As I was riding o'er the moor
The very evening after
It was my fortune for to meet
The farmer's only daughter
Although the weather being cold and raw
With her I thought to parlay
The answer that she gave to me
"Kind sir, I've sold my barley"
