Nice, Gordon.  I'm currently reading The Unquiet Grave by Sharyn McCrumb.  But in her  book it's the mother who is grieving for her murdered daughter.  Thanks for giving the history of the song. Dulcinina

You are very welcome, dulcinina. I found several different variations, Joan Baez has a beautiful rendition where it is a young girl grieving for her lost love. Thanks for listening.
