Subject: RE: Req/ADD: Horse called Napoleon
Be interesting to find out where this song came from. Seems fairly old.
Very different from "Wal, I Swan," by Burt (1907), with its 'Giddyap, Napoleon, it looks like rain.'

Most versions speak of the boney parts.
The Hambletonian still goes on, at the meadowlands.
