On a poem by Thomas Moore, friend of Byron & Shelley. He wrote it in 1813 to the tune of The Groves Of Blarney, credited to Richard Milliken from County Kilkenny. The same melody was used throughout Friedrich von Flotow's opera Martha (1847), while Mendelssohn wrote a piano Fantasia on this same theme.
Eddie Cantor [light variation with different words as Oh, The Last Rose Of Summer on Pathé]
Tom Waits [on The Black Rider, only for inspiration; like his Tom Traubert's Blues was inspired by Waltzing Matilda]
