Well I'd say all the versions I've heard are "Trad" or "Trad. arr."

Certainly there's a good range of versoions . . Inc. Gypsy Davey and Seven Yellow Gypsies . .

sorry George, I should have clarified - what I meant was that some arrangments are under copy right, though the song itself is traditional.

It was probably written by Anon in 1643 to embarass Lord Cassilis (several months after his wife died, late 1642). He was a staunch Covenanter. [There was no truth in the tale.]
