This is the Irish version of a song widely known all over Europe, usually under the title "The Tree in the Wood" or "The Everlasting Circle". A well known variation has "the green grass grew all around" as the chorus. It is sung in many languages, including French, Italian, Danish and Welsh, and to many tunes." In Ireland this tune is called a polka, in Scotland a strathspey (called "John MacAlpin") and in England a morris dance.
