Many foxhunting songs are still sung at hunt suppers,  This particular one goes back over 200 years.  It has only appeared in English song collections.  Alfred Williams also obtained the song from David Sawyer, Ogbourne [St Andrew], Wiltshire, and apparently collated the two versions into the one we see here.
