I heard the original from Dominic Behan whose uncle (as has already been pointed out) wrote the lyrics. There are a few differences in to what has already been posted but not too significant although I think verse four benefits from the original line 'Some died by the glenside, some died mid the stranger..'.
'Mid the stranger' rather than 'near the stranger'.
