It's an essential performing skill, together with the ability (if you're accompanying yourself) to put in an instrumental break between verses and look is if it was planned.

The great thing about ad libbing folk songs is that the words don't even have to rhyme, or the lines scan. The important thing is to do it with conviction so it doesn't look like a mistake. At the very least, keep going and mumble until you get back on track.
