so I'm confused, The "The Irish Rovers" version of Killiburn Brae has different lyrics according to Spotify.

for example, at the start of the song the line sang "there was an old farmer named Killiburn brae" is written as "There was an ould man down by Killiburn Brae"

another line says "the devil had come up to the farmer one day" when in the lyric section it's written out as "One day as this man he walked out in the glen".

it honestly pissed me tf off because like three o four times I was confused when listening, so I went to the lyrics, just to find out that their written differently.
