This is a traditional English Folk song popularised by Steeleye Span. This version by Folk Duo 'Green Wood' includes a traditional tune called 'The Derby Kelly Oh' which is featured in The Staus Quo song 'Burning Bridges' and 'Come on You Reds'. The Green Wood version omits a verse so the words have been included in the slide show which contrasts prosperity with hard times and suggests the current situation economically is similar to economic recessions of the past.
