Lia Luachra did it on their self titled first album, on Malgamu Music MALGCD112.

THE GYPSY MOTH
(Hoyt Axton)

The Gypsy Moth is a mighty high flyer, sailing on land and sea
You are the object of my desire, the sun and the moon to me
I believe in love and you know that you keep me from feeling blue
And you make me happy, everything I do gets me in trouble

River can rock, river can roll
River can carry me back to the sea

Ramblin' Jack had a woman he loved, but the woman didn't love Jack back
She took his smile, she took his child, took everything he had
The river was a name she used to know, she kept him so damn confused
She made him unhappy, everything she did got him in trouble

River can rock, river can roll
River can carry me back to the sea

Many long years have come and gone since John F Kennedy died
I'm not sure but what that man was downright crucified
The same mad guys are still telling lies, you know they keep usused and abused
They make us unhappy, everything they do gets us in trouble

River can rock, river can roll
River can carry me back to the sea

The black racoon, by the light of the moon, with the music playing soft and low
The songs we'd sing made the night time ring, and the racoon loved the show
He went back and he told his friends "You know those humans who live on the edge
of the forest, they all had a party, and man they really played my kind of music

River can rock, river can roll
River can carry me back to the sea
River can rock, river can roll
River can carry me back to the sea


Hope this helps, Nynia. :-) -) )
