For reasons touched upon above the song rings true on various levels - as a piece of vernacular song-craft informed by various levels of early 20th century popular song & culture. Forgive me if I part company from Separatist Traddies who think their precious songs exist in a vacuum, but the botton line here must be - if it was good enough for the likes of Peter Bellamy, Jim Eldon and latterly Jon Boden, then it's good enough for the likes of me.
