The Fureys have never been partcularly bothered about getting words and titles right. On their first album they record "Flowers in the Valley" (Child #11) which they learned off Gordon Geekie who sang it more or less as printed in Baring Gould. Eddie's version has got lots of pretty words but completely misses the point that the maiden wants a lover who is assertive and doesn't use the words "may" and "might" all the time.
