I only ever heard the Donovan version. I hear it as 'lavalle' or something similar.

The only other noticeable difference is in the last verse:
His orders come from far away no more
They come from him, and you, and me
and brothers can't you see
this is not the way we put an end to war.


Which I remember hearing as:

His orders come from far away no more
They come from here and there, and you, and me
and brothers can't you see
this is not the way we put an end to war.

Cheers
