It look like "A Jacobite Song" which is from VA-WV- Canada, British, 1914 in Davis Appendix and Creighton's version sung by Mrs. E. H. McKeen, of Sherbrooke, are based on a version in Smith's Scottish Minstrel.

[Child says, "In Smith's Scottish Minstrel, IV, 66, the piece is turned into a Jacobite ballad. The good wife says she is hiding her cousin Mclntosh; 'Tories,' says the goodman."

Does anyone have the text for teh version in Smith's Scottish Minstrel, IV, 66 ?
