“Dirty Old Town” is probably one of my favorite songs. I’ve never heard a bad version of it. It’s just such a beautiful sentiment to a place, which is something not often found in songs. I’m glad to find this cover of it by someone who wrote another one of my favorite songs (“Pancho and Lefty”), Townes Van Zandt. 

Other great versions of this song can be found by the likes of The Mountain Goats, The Pogues, The Dubliners, and the song’s author Ewan MacColl.
