I think Alan pointed out the version that I have heard. In its entirety, the song is somewhat over 20 minutes to sing. The original version is exceptionally long and becomes exceptionally boring. Pretty well all of the more modern versions seem to take parts of the whole story and use them as works with the new tune.
