Recently it was recorded by Niamh Parsons - beautifully! Instead of "deaden the 'pain" she sings "deaden the 'stoon'. I don't have a clue what a 'stoon' is. I think Andy Irvine sings it that way too. I may change that word to 'pain' when I sing it - it makes more sense. Anybody know what 'stoon' means?
