Although this was another edited tune (one reworked by Manfred Mann's Band that was written by Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen) for original single airplay at top 40 stations back in 1976 - 77 (to 3:45), the 7:07 album ("The Roaring Silence") cut was played a great deal on many radio stations (including AM top 40 stations, but especially many of the by then more prominent FM stations) and continues to be the more prominent version played by most radio stations. (The edit for the single by Mann is painfully way to obvious by most listeners).

"The Bonny Swans," Loreena McKennitt Lenght:7:18
"The Bonny Swans," which the Canadian-born Celtic singer-harpist Loreena McKennitt recorded for and released on her album "The Mask And Mirror," is her interpretation of the Celtic folk tale called "The Twa Sisters," also called "The Cruel Sister" and "Two Sisters." Her full-length version of the selection spans seven minutes and eighteen seconds in toto; the version that was edited for radio consumes four minutes and fifty-seven seconds. Its lyrics are essentially a murder ballad. These re-tell the story of one of at least two farmer's daughters, whose sister cruelly drowns her for the sake of a man, only to have her corpse transmuted to a swan, then be reconstructed to become a harp--one that eventually plays without human intervention and, in so playing, reveals the other sister's crime.
