I've a version of Flower of sweet Strabane and I would like to know if an artist has recorded it that way (I know there's a lot of recording have been made):

If I were King of Ireland and had all things at my will
I'd roam for recreation and for comfort still
The comfort I would seek the most, so that you may understand
Is to win the heart of Martha, the Flower of Sweet Strabane

Her cheeks they're like the blooming rose, her hair a lovely brown
And o'er her lily white shoulders it carelessly hangs down
She is one of the finest creature of the whole Milesian clan
And my heart is captivated by the flower of Sweet Strabane

I wish I had my darling down in Inishowen
Or in some lonely valley in the wild woods of Tyrone
I do my whole endeavour, I work on my newest plan
For to win my prize and feast my eyes on The flower of sweet strabane

But since I cannot win her love, no joy there is for me
And I'll go and seek forgetfulness in lands behind the sea
My ship is bounded for Liverpool down by the Isle of Man
So, Farewell my lovely Martha, the flower of sweet Strabane
