You can also hear this at The Circle Folk club in Coseley West Mid's on Wed nights by myself Desi C Irish singer. And the origin is definitely English coming from Northumbria, written by Charles Jeffrys, music by sidney Nolan around the 1840's. But in my Native Ireland most people think it's Irish or Scots. Must say I find the Cories version very poor, and prefer Sean cannon's or mary Black's excellent country version
