Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 7
Hi Amos,

I have the Ives version title Bold Soldier, dated c. 1940 here:http://www.bluegrassmessengers.com/bold-soldier--blind-street-singer-il-c1940-ives.aspx

He claimed to have learned it from a blind street musician. I categorize the ballad as an appendix to Child 7, Earl Brand. I have about 70 US versions on my site of "The Bold Soldier" and related ballads.
