Possible variant?

Joanie Madden has a tune "The Immigrant" on her 1996 album "Song of the Irish Whistle". Her version has a different timing emphasis but comparing the two leads me to think that the tune is the same. Can anyone confirm this?

Not a variant on Joanie Madden tune

This is an original tune written by my wife Debbie. She wrote it as an ending for her song "Land of Opportunity" recorded on her 1997 CD entitled "Root and Wings". I can state with great certainty that any similarity to a Joanie Madden tune is complete coincidence … we don’t have any of Joanie’s CDs in our collection and Debbie listens mostly to Scottish tunes, so I’m pretty certain she wouldn’t have heard Joanie’s tune.
