  17. 17. VARIATIONS  This very popular Child ballad is also known as The Sweet Trinity, The Golden Willow Tree, The Turkish Revelry and several other titles. The title of the oldest surviving version (about 1635) was Sir Walter Raleigh Sailing In The Lowlands (Shewing how the famous Ship called the Sweet Trinity was taken by a false Gally & how it was again restored by the craft of a little Sea-boy, who sunk the Gally). There are many variations with different outcomes for the brave cabin boy. In most variants, the captain refuses to take him back aboard the ship, let alone reward him; some versions have the boy sinking his captain's ship or threatening to sink it, but more often, he drowns (sometimes after saying he would sink the ship if it weren't for the crew). In other versions he is rescued by the crew, but dies on the deck.
