One version of Soldier's Joy is called Payday in the Army. I can see that there are versions of the song that seem to evolve into "Gee mom I want to Come Home."
Does anyone have the lyrics to "Payday in the Army" under that title? Any info on hte origin?
I've found several versions that scan the Soldier's Joy melody but I don't know if the "Gee Mom I want to Come Home" is now a different melody.
The fiddler's companion lists "Love Somebody" as a different but related song to Soldier's Joy. Kuntz has "Love Somebody" as based on "My Love is But A Lassie Yet." I thought they were the same melody.
What is the distinction?
Any help is welcome,
