Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Crooked Jack (Dominic Behan)
The tune, or variants of it, is a lot (100s of years!) older, and has been used for a good few other songs and hymns:
Dives and Lazarus
Van Diemen's Land (Come all ye gallant poachers)
Star of the County Down (as mentioned above)
Kingsfold
My Love Nell
Led By the Spirit
The Seven Rejoices of Mary (Loreena McKennitt)
