You can hear the Owen Brannigan record on youtube.

Here's the bass singer Owen Brannigan singing three folk songs from his native Northumbria north East of England "Three North Countrie Folk Songs" Billy Boy - My Bonny Lad - Bobby Shaftoe - from a 78 rpm shellac record released in 1948. Owen Brannigan OBE (10 March 1908 9 May 1973) was an English bass, known in opera for buffo roles.

Just two verses of My Bonny Lad.
