The version my mom sang as we'd drive to & from Chicago from South Bend when we were kids:

Above a plain of gold & green
A young boy's head is plainly seen.
A hoo-ya, hoo-ya, hoo-ya-ya, swiftly flowing waters.
A hoo-ya, hoo-ya, hoo-ya-ya, swiftly flowing Labay.

But oh, 'tis not his lifted head,
'Tis if Ca's Castle spires instead.
A hoo-ya, hoo-ya, hoo-ya-ya, swiftly flowing waters.
A hoo-ya, hoo-ya, hoo-ya-ya, swiftly flowing Labay.

...But I still don't understand the references to Ca's Castle or Labay (if those are correct)....
