Mentioned in the Stationers Register in 1557 but this version has not survived. It is in Percy's Folio Manuscript, the garland of 1663 and broadsides in the Roxburgh, Bagford and Pepys Collections. Not found in oral tradition. Bronson gives Rimbault's setting of Child A to a tune from a lute MS, and the tune and single verse of 'Wakefield on a green' from Chappell's 'Popular Music', but no oral versions.
