GUEST,Sean Recordings of The Brown Girl (4) Recordings of The Brown Girl 01 Mar 00

I am trying to find any recordings of The Brown Girl. The version I want is in the Mudcat Database. It's the one that starts "When first to this country, I came as a stranger . . . "

I can't find it anywhere. It isn't the same words or melody as on Steeleye Span's Rocket Cottage.

The one I want was collected in Canada by Creighton, as far as I know.

Any available covers of this version? Thanks!
