It's marginally helpful to know that it's found in 'Songs of Country Life and Custom' by C.J. Sharp. However, I live in western Canada, thousands of miles from Cecil Sharp house, and that book does not seem to be available on any variant of Amazon, or on Abebooks, or the local library system in my city, and there's no internet access to the journals of the folk song society!

So - if someone has a copy of the lyrics SHarp wrote down in 1916, could they maybe post it?

And if there's a pdf of a tune, that would be wonderful too!
