I could be wrong here, but I always thought that Nic Jones wrote the melody line, as well as arranging the lyrics to fit. Basically, he took the printed word and made a song of it with no reference to any previous tune. Is that correct? If so, that is why Dylan's wholesale copy was a theft, not a folk process or whatever.
