“I Am A Youth That’s Inclined To Ramble” – Cara Dillon

Like so many traditional songs that I love I first came across “I Am A Youth That’s Inclined To Ramble” thanks to Kate Burke and Ruth Hazelton, but most people probably know the track thanks to versions from Paul Brady or this one from Cara Dillon.
