From the recording Little Musgrave
Child Ballad #81, known in other versions in Scotland and America as “Matty Groves,” and first appearing in broadsides in the early 17th century. A sad tale of inappropriate love and violent reprisal, it is also quoted in several old plays from the Elizabethan Era. We have it from the singing of Nic Jones and Christy Moore.
