Thread Name: Origins: Soldier's Joy
Subject: RE: Origins: Soldier's Joy
There was a mention way back in 2000 of "Auntie Mary had a canary" - that's to the tune of Cock of the North, not Soldier's Joy.
Adam MacNaughtan's "Scottish Play" (M*cbeth for the superstitious!) IS to the tune of Soldier's Joy.
And yes, it's widely played both N and S of the England/Scotland border.
