The adaptation of Richard Farina's lyrics to the tune of "My Lagan Love" was done by Mr. Farina himself, not by Sandy Denny. The original version can be found on the Richard & Mimi Farina "Memories" album, which was released a year or two after Richard's untimely death in 1966. Sandy did a very nice job of covering it, but the song predates her arrangement.
