"I don't think Child liked any of the English versions of the song, but again, I would be happy to be corrected."
Must admit, it's my least faourite ballad - though the Irish offshoot, Streets of Derry is exquisite
I wonder how many people know Child wrote a song on The American Civil War - had he vere sung it, he would have been classed as a singer/songwriter
