Thread Name: Lyr Req: Don't Send My Boy to Prison (and parodies
Subject: RE: Can you NAME THIS TUNE ??-Dont Send my boy...
A variation of the problem is that sometimes the tune prescribed is just plain wrong. I have seen the "Wreck of Old '97" tune referred to as "Casey Jones." The two songs have such different stanza patterns that the mistake is obvious - to us!
I think I mentioned on another thread the inability of some to distinguish readily between "Mademoiselle from Armentieres" and "When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again."
