Description:

My take on this folk standard, also known as Flora. Accompied with classical guitar, recorded with a home recorder thus limited sound quality

Thank you for posting this traditional ballad, Jost!  It is an unfamiliar ballad to me and your posting got me in search of further information.  



Thanks for your kind words Robin.


I first heard it from Joan Baez. There is also a quite nice arrangement 
on a record by greek singer Nana Maskouri .

Reinhard Zierke wrote about the ballad on his page "Mainly norfolk" (great resource especially in getting informations about British folk songs!):
