A folk song written by an Englishman for a play about his hometown (Salford), but which has become most popular in the hands of a couple of Irish artists. And yet, all the featured versions from the last decade or so come from American acts. This underscores the song's timeless, universal appeal, especially at the end of winter, as many of us look out the window at our own dirty old towns.
