Extra Information Although Bishop composed this song, it was adapted for John Howard Payne's 1823 opera Clari, Maid of Milan. The melody is Bishop's, though the original text was by John Bayly. Payne's text was used for the 1823 production.

Navigation etc.

It is interesting, in comparing different versions, to see how the melody has altered widely through the folk process.

Also see the discussion of this song in The Works of Sir Henry Bishop (last few pages of that article).
