NOTES [49 words]: England describes this as a sentimental ballad, and everything else he cites in his book has been printed in some other folk collection, so I'm including it. But I don't recognize his fragment as part of anything else, so here it sits, awaiting, shall we say, union with the rest of its text. - RBW
