Thread Name: Origins: Soldier's Joy
Subject: Origins of 'Soldier's Joy'?
While playing at a session the other night, someone wondered if "Soldier's Joy" was strictly an American tune or not. It seems to me that I've heard somewhere that the tune is Irish in origin, but may go under another name on that side of the Atlantic. So, I thought that if anyone can confirm or deny this notion, it would be the crowd at the Mudcat.

The floor is now open....
