Dennis the Elder Origins: Spencer the Rover (33) RE: Origins: Spencer the Rover 09 Jul 12

Just obtained the New Penguin Book of English Folk Songs and the version quoted therein is quite different.
For example first line of second verse "Through Yorkshires broad valleys oh he travel'd for some years" (No mention of Rotherham) Also there are only 5 verses quoted, no 5th of November verse and no woodbine and ivy verse.
Now which version came first???
