Hares on the Mountain, A Somerset Blues?

From Folk Songs from Somerset, Series 1, Cecil J. Sharp and Charles L. Marson, London, 1904.

I think if I were attempting this song, I might approach it as a proto country blues song, replacing the fourth line of each verse (Fol diddle dero, fol diddle dee) with a harmonica line.

Various folk versions on YouTube:

Steeleye span - Hares on the mountain

Ignore the unfortunate comments.

Shirley Collins and Davy Graham - Hares On The Mountain

Neeka - Hares on the mountain (LIVE)

Jonny Kearney and Lucy Farrell - Hares on the Mountain
