I learned this from the Clancy's (in the late 60s I'd guess from the song folder it's in - I wasn't as good at keeping source details in those days!) under the title of The Mountain Tay. The words were substantially the same as posted by Bernard above with the exception of the verse:

A gallon for the butcher, a quart for Tom,
A bottle for poor old Father John
To help his prayers and his hymns along,
In the Hills of Connemara.
