Some versions have the unexpected slowing down that you mention, but others use a "regular" tune without the additional bar. I have recordings by The Spinners and by Hughie Jones as well as a version sung by John Millar at Mystic Seaport Festival in 1976 (not to mention the midi file in the digital tradition database).

See also this thread where I mentioned the plurality of tunes
