GUEST,Lighter Lyr Req: The Gallant Forty-Twa (21) RE: Lyr Req: The Gallant Forty-Twa 03 Aug 15

The tune (apparently) was first known as "The Son of a Gambolier."

It appeared in the United States during the Civil War. Parody words frequently appeared from before World War I till the 1950s or '60s.

Nowadays it's usually thought of as the Georgia Tech college "fight song" under the title "The Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech." These lyrics date back to at least 1908.
