Sounds like the melody was used for some other songs, like "The Battle of New Orleans".
"This young wine may have a lot of tannins now, but in 5 or 10 years it is going to be spectacular, despite the fact that right now it tastes like crude oil. You know this is how it is supposed to taste at this stage of development." ~ Itzhak Perlman
Yay! Clap, clap, clap. Yes I too have always loved this tune because my uncle used to sing it (New Orleans version).
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
Great job @Barry .
This has been my go to tune at the jam session I attend. That is until this week, just last night. I have started learning St Anne's Reel and I kept switching to it and got myself all confused!!
