Though this song was written in Ohio in 1877, and published in sheet music as a "Song with Waltz Chorus," it has become very much a part of the folk tradition, especially in Newfoundland, where it has been recorded by Eddie Coffey in the 1970s and groups such as Ryan's Fancy and Great Big Sea. Other artists who have recorded it include Dolores Keane and Foster and Allen.
