The Scottish version was very popular in the clubs in the late 70's.
I remember in the Ullapool folk club when Archie Fisher was the guest and he sang this song.
After he sung it an old retired captain in the audience told us all that this was the favourite song on the Wool Cutters.
If this is where it originated then I can see why it went all over the place with each country having its own version.
