The Prickle Eye Bush

What's this? A traditional song? For the folk purists, it is derived from Child Ballad No95, and there are countless variations recorded by everyone from Leadbelly to Led Zeppelin, usually involving a maid and a gallows pole. The one I know best is by Jon Boden and Bellowhead. My own Prickle Eye Bush makes a guest appearance behind me.
