It starts off very like "My father he left me an acre of land", but the "B" music is completely unfamiliar. Do Pecsaetan have a website?

Well, it's certainly a variant of "William and Nancy".  I'll see what more I can discover in due course.........

Oh blimey, yes. Well done. Just had a look through the Black Book at Bledington William and Nancy. It says "Hathaway always went off into Over the Water". So had a look at Over the Water and reckon that's the one.

Great version mind.

Not sure of the tune, but it is "bucknell" style.  does sound quite a lot like William and Nancy.
