The folk song was probably born in Cornwall with the titles of Nightingale sweetheart, come along or in those valleys below words of Sweet Nightingale were first published in Robert Bell Ancient Poems of the Peasantry of England, 1857, with the note:”This curious ditty said to be a translation from the ancient Cornish tongue we first heard in Germany The singers were four Cornish miners, who were at that time, 1854, employed at some lead mines near the town of Zell.

I have read it over to a mining gentleman at Truro, and he says it is pretty near the way we sing it.”The tune most people sing was collected by Rev.
