the Emry Arthur version (Vocalion 5234; my recording is by Bill Dillof and Dave Rice) has a couple extra verses; I'll post them if anybody is interested.
The very first recording I ever heard ot this wasn't Poole; it was the Old Reliable String Band on one of those great big clunky Folkways recordes c. 1963. In the liner notes Roy Berkeley talked about how he and Tom Paley had argued over the same words that Ms. Harp and Stewie couldn't decide; Roy (who sang lead) won and sang "a pleasant quiet shore" while Paley held out for "pleasant white shore."
   I love this song; it's one of the Ten Happy Love Songs which I save for weddings.
