Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 7
There is a much moe colloquial version of the tale of the single soldier battling seven men to win his maiden's hand from an overbearing father. It was recorded by Burl Ives under the title The Bold Soldier.

But I suppose this is known already and am mentioning it just in case.
