Thread Name: Origins: Soldier and the Sailor (Soldier's Prayer)
Subject: RE: Origins: Soldier and the Sailor (Soldier's Prayer)
An adapted version of A Soldier and a Sailor was very popular in the early 60s around dublin. After spending a long time trying to track it down I finally found it was written and recorded by Dominic Behan, and is on one of his L/ps. However, He changed the title to "May he also have Ten". As a newcomer, I don't know if you did a thread on "alternate titles" to folk songs, if not , it might be an idea.
