Verses composed by Ammon Wrigley (1862-1946), self-educated poet and antiquarian of Saddleworth, Yorkshire, set to music in the 1920s by Hugh Beech.

Today the song is in the repertoire of Will Noble - builder, stone mason and champion drystone waller from Shepley near Huddersfield. Will can be heard singing the song on A Century of Song: A Celebration of Traditional Singers since 1898 (EFDSS CD02).
