Ephraim's Lament is in the category of songs which were so popular, there are many versions.   The traditional version can be found on pages 8-9 in my songster : http://www.zipcon.net/~silas/Drill/songster.htm  Another version can be found in Hooley's Opera House Songster from 1863 listed as the Contraband's Lament (p. 23) : http://archive.org/stream/hooleysoperhouse00newyrich 

 

That's a great collection Silas. And the versions too.
