That was very nice. I am working on learning this tune in DAd. Your version and your dulcimer sound really good - thanks for sharing.

Great playing and fine rendition, William. Love the continual back-beat. This has been a favorite of mine since I first heard Joan Baez perform it back in the '60s.

There is debate over the copyright (issued to Francis McPeake in the 1950s) to this song, as it borrows heavily from the earlier public domain "Braes of Balquhidder." In my research I have found the tune (with this title)in several hymnals, obviously with different (sacred)lyrics. In these books, the tune was listed as "traditional," and no copyright challenge appears to have taken place to any of the hymnals. The tune, apparently, is safe; though I would not recommend using it in conjunction with McPeake's lyrics.
