    My gosh , but what a voice ! (The lyrics remind me of an Irish WW1 veteran who once was my patient ... I got to know him and "his story" quite well , hence the "connection" .) I'm sure that Mr Snowden (born on a hillside overlooking the city of Dublin , aged 14 years when "over the top" in the first wave of "The Somme") would have much enjoyed the simply beautiful voice of Mr Paddy !

    Is this the exact same version I "loved"? I usually hate orchestral stringed instrumentation like this, and I dislike this one, although I love Irish music with traditional instrumentation...
