Nicely played.  The refrain, especially, sounds very Jarrell-ish.  The bluegrass versions all pretty much grow out of the Doc Watson rendition, which goes right to the V chord in the refrain.  Not a Wardian, Creedy, Cockerhamish, fretless thing to do; if you live around Round Peak, you want to slide!
