Either Burl Ives or Woody tell a tale of being arrested for singing "The Foggy Foggy Dew"; the paddies reportedly said they knew all about that kind of song, with its subtle anti-Victorian sentiments condoning improprietous intimacies between alleged adults who, although consenting, should not have been. (Not the battle song; the bachelor at the weaver's trade song).
