bunkerhill Lyr Req: old fiddle tunes (19) RE: Lyr Req: Need lyrics to old fiddle tunes 11 Dec 99

"Play Old-time Country Fiddle," Jerry Silverman, Chilton Book Co., Radnor, Pa., copywright 1975, includes lyrics to 50 or more of the 75 tunes therein, as well as dance calls for many and photos of some fiddlin' champs. Found on shelves of public library in small city where I live, so I s'pect it's readily available elsewhere or thru regional library inter-change. With "Soldier's Joy" it uses a song called "Chase the Rabbit." Saw lyrics in a book of Civil War tunes for a song called "Soldier's Joy." Last line was something like "dance all night, dance all day, and that's the soldier's joy." Anyone know offhand if there's much difference between American and British isles versions of tune? Is "soldier's joy" taken as synonym for payday on both sides of pond?
