Night Owl Lyr Req: Soldier, Soldier^^ (48) RE: Lyr Req: Soldier, Soldier^^ 11 Sep 02


I learned a song as a "traditional" Appalachian song called "Soldier John". For SOME reason I thought it referred to the U.S. Civil War. The tune is very different, (faster)than a Ballad I USED to know with the lyrics in Mrzzy's last post (in which the last line of the chorus is repeated...or echoed). The only connection I can make with the two songs is that they both are asking a Soldier to wed. Feels to me like connecting two songs because they both mention the color green....bg

I'm wondering here if "Soldier,soldier".....is a third song or not. Going to the DT to play for a bit again.
