C - what is your source: Planxty?

Nope! But it would be nice to see someone add a transcription of their take on it… ;-)

S: It’s a nice melody and that’s just some of the ways I find myself playing it… It goes back that far I’ve not a clue where I picked it up from originally, though I did also used to sing it too.



Can’t find any lyrics of the song in this session site.
Like some help please.



..of course, Paul Brady’s version is not the same as Andy Irvine’s "Planxty" version, but then neither is the tune posted above by the OP.
