I often hear this sung in sessions, and no 2 people sing it exactly the same: so unless you can get your hands on Iain Ingram's original rendition you might have to make do with a folk processed version! I have just listened to 5 YouTube versions: all different!! (And to me, not even any passing resemblance to "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" in any of them!!)
The commonest variant is in the chorus on the words "you'd rather be" - some people go up, others go down! I'm told by a friend of Iain's that going down is correct!
