Don't want to be pedantic here but the song as quoted in the first post on this thread is not the version recorded by Christy Moore on Prosperous. In fact the "Prosperous" version is much closer to the one given underneath. The top version is the one most often sung in Ireland and comes from the '60s ballad boom. I'm not sure what the source of this abbreviated version was, but it wasn't Christy.
