Until Metallica covered it in 1998, that was probably the most famous version. The song actually dates back to the 1600s in Ireland. The most traditional version I can think of was done by the Dubliners. If you listen to that and compare it to the rest... and there's a lot... you see that Metallica simply Metallica'd it up with nothing really new other than Hetfield's YeahYeahYEah!!!. They just made a copy of Thin Lizzy. Here's a few versions starting with The Dubliners. Note that The Dead really did all they could to stay traditional while giving it their own unique sound. Personally, Thin Lizzy's version is my favorite.




    I'm gonna follow up on this a little. Burl Frakkin' Ives did a version of this, too. I looked briefly, didn't see it, moved on. Burl Ives was the singer who voiced the snowman in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Moving on, videos in the next post.

    Here's a band called "Smokie" covering it in 1988. Definitely a Thin Lizzy-inspired version:



    This version is by The Kildares, a Dallas, Texas band. Jump ahead to 3:00:



    Now, we're going to the dark side... it'll get progressively worse from here on out. Here's the Robert de Cormier Singers:



    Here's Peter Paul and Mary (this USED to be my most hated version):



    NOW, here's the very worst version I've ever heard. It's by violinist Daniel Kobialka:



    EDIT: Thin Lizzy is STILL my favorite, with the Grateful Dead's version a close second.
