Uke Soldier Bible Card Deck Song (46) RE: Soldier Bible Card Deck Song 02 Feb 07


In 1960s New Zealand, several 'rugby' versions were constructed, which is pretty appropriate in this rugby-crazed country. There was a 7" single released and I found some lyrics in an old student revue songsheet. Another single came out in the late 1970s called 'The Rugby Deck of Cards'. They're all pretty tongue in cheek and generally amusing.

In one of the postings above, 12-stringer said that the decks of cards theme: "...dates back to at least the 18th century and comes from the UK"

I wonder if anyone knows of any of these early versions???
