In the Bodleian Library is a broadside printed ca. 1845-1859 by A Ryle and Co., Seven Dials and Portsea, England, with the exact words of the version from American Memory posted by Richie, 05 Nov. 02, 12:45. The heading is "POLLY Won't you try me O." Firth b26(235).

It says it was sung by Mrs. Florence, at Drury Lane Theatre. I wonder how the audience understood "For Jordan's a hard road to travel I believe."
