Thread Name: is Rattlin Bog Irish?
Subject: RE: is Rattlin Bog Irish?
The tune was used for an otherwise unrelated song in a Disney movie in the early '60s, I believe. Something about a "headless horse."

They made us sing "The Green Grass Grew All Around" (different tune) as first or second graders in the US in the mid '50s. Encouraged good concentration, I guess.
