This song is by Tony Rose and appears on the album Under the Greenwood Tree (1971). I am a young lad and my fortune is bad,What riches I had is all plundered;I've spent all my money on girls and strong beer,And if ever I get rich 't is a wonder. It's field after field to market I sentTill my land was all gone and my money all spent. My heart was so hard I could never repent,And 't was that what brought me to Limbo.

Under the Greenwood Tree is a 1918 American silent drama film directed by Emile Chautard and starring Elsie Ferguson. The movie was based on a play by Henry V. Esmond. An unrelated British film with this title based on the Thomas Hardy novel Under the Greenwood Tree was made in 1929. The film possibly has a scene where Ferguson swims in the nude in a pond. The title refers to a line in William Shakespeare's play As You Like It (Act II, Scene V). It is classified as being a lost film.

To dwellers in a wood almost every species of tree has its voice as well as its feature. At the passing of the breeze the fir-trees sob and moan no less distinctly than they rock; the holly whistles as it battles with itself; the ash hisses amid its quivering’s; the beech rustles while its flat boughs rise and fall. And winter, which modifies the note of such trees as shed their leaves, does not destroy its individuality. On a cold and starry Christmas-eve within living memory a man was passing up a lane towards Mel stock Cross in the darkness of a plantation that whispered thus distinctively.

Folk singer who was one of the strongest advocates of English traditional music. His first album, with a powerful version of the extraordinary ballad Young Hunting, came out in 1970 and was followed by Under The Greenwood Tree (1971), On Banks Of Green Willow (1976) and Poor Fellows (1982). With Nic Jones and Martin Carthy, he became one of the folk world's great exponents of narrative and musical invention.
