Hi Mark!

You'll find the version you want on a Clancy Brothers recording.

Joe "Banjo" Burke who's from Killkenny and sings here in New York quite a bit has the Kate Kearney variant:

Some say the devil's dead, the devil's dead, devil's dead and buried in Killarney.
More say he rose again, rose again, rose again and married Katie Kearney.

Katie she is tall and thin, tall and thin, tall and thin. Likes a drop of whiskey.
Takes it in her bed at night, bed at night, bed at night. She says it makes her sexy.

My wife she has a hairy thing, hairy thing, hairy thing. She showed it to me Sunday.
Bought it in a furrier's shop, furrier's shop, furrier's shop. It's going back on Monday.

If you sing it out, don't forget "Banjo". He's a great guy.

All the best,
Dan Milner
