Thread Name: Origins: Patriot Game
Subject: RE: Patriot Game
janice in nj: can you give us a source for that "bold protestants" song....are you sure it predates dominic behan? if t does i'm sure your suggestion that it inspired the patriot game must be rightg. the Nightingale/Bold Grenadier (same song )tune was around a long time before any Appalachian recording, bu i cant give chapter and verse forthat, i dont recall which book it was published in, but i'm sure it was 19century
