    I'm partial to the Cowboy Junkies cover of it.



    I think maybe Jane has overtaken Maria for the lead in this thread.

    The tune of this song is very old. There was a legend that if you heard a girl singing it, you'd have good luck. The Irish lyrics are probably around 300 years old, the English only 200.

    I think most high schools probably had their own version of Abigail Beecher - mine certainly did

    Good song , not well known to me. Interestingly the English name Jane, which has been trending in this thread, is the equivalent of the Irish Gaelic name Sinead . It means God is gracious. English speakers generally find that Irish names are difficult to pronounce. This one is shin aid .

    300 years ago , if an Irish girl had a cow to milk, she was damn lucky herself. And probably happy enough to sing about it. ;)

    This should be disqualified from this thread. I think we determined that Lola was not a female.

    Ha, yeah those Irish names are a trip. Saoirse. Siobhan. The lead singer from the band Crooked Still is Aiofe O'Donovan.

    I might've missed it, but I don't remember seeing this. Song got another life after being featured in one of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies.
