The original Kingston Trio sings an old British folk song (also called "The Maid Freed From The Gallows") that is also known in several different variants throughout the U.S., though mostly in the southern Appalachians and in Louisiana. The Trio adheres fairly strictly to the traditional English structure of the song, which has also been recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary, Leadbelly, Odetta, John Jacob Niles, the Smother Brothers, and many others.
For a discussion of the song with many other versions, see the blog associated with this YT channel at:
