Marc Lyr Req: Dirty Hog eye man? (57* d) RE: Lyr Req: Dirty Hog eye man? 07 Dec 00

Joe, there are no words. It's a tune or a marc called Hog Eye Man,h, it is printed in a book called"A Fifers and Drummers Guide" by Daniel Emmett & Geo Bruce, first published in 1861 I believe. The melody does not appeare to be the one I'm accustom to hearing used with the chantey. And I've allways wondered if anyone else has ever considered a connection between the two, as the chantey almost certainly has minstrel roots , wich is what Emmett was

Marc Bernier most famous for.
