I went to a Finbar Furey concert in Darwin last week, which I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed. I had I feeling I wouldn't, partly because I never forgave him for mucking around with the title and lyrics of this song.

During the concert he said that he recently bumped into Eric Bogle, and they discussed this song at length. Finbar claimed that they agreed that the song was now "there's" and not just Eric's. The folk process?

Having said that, if you listen to the Furey's version, it is performed very well, and still gives me goosebumps.
