Notes: This is mainly from the singing of Louis Killen (Gateshead, UK), though it is very similar in words & tune to singing of John Roberts(Schenectady, NY) (who cites A.L. Lloyd), and "Ballads & Sea Songs of Newfoundland" edited by Elisabeth B. Greenleaf and Grace Y. Mansfield (Harvard U. Press 1933) [sung by Mrs. Tom White, Jr., Sandy Cove (Nfld, Canada), 1929)
