To Joe and all,
I recommend linking this thread to the Peggy Gordon thread and also to the one for Carrickfergus, which is the overseas root of this great song. Also to any other near relations such as "Sick Young Lover," if it's in the DT.
Peggy Gordon is one of the theme songs of my life.
I'm grateful for having a chance to see these further versions, and I think all DT users would benefit from linking up the variants.
