This song is one of many variations on the ballad known as "Lady Isabel and the Elfin Knight" , "The Outlandish Knight" , "Little Billy" and "Pretty Polly".

This version was collected in the USA, and was recorded by Richard Dyer-Bennett, among others. It has been noted that it is one of the few ballads where the woman refuses to be a victim and turns the tables on her attacker.

This song is on my first CD: "AXIS OF EVIL and other True Stories."
