Subject: RE: SING OUT Volume 33 Anyone Got Access?
Ah, that us from page 128, in Vol 33, no 3. (Yes, I have paper copies.) The letter writer us Barney Baley and he does indeed say Hi-Jo-Jerum was a marching song when he was with the International Brigades during the war in Spain, 1936-39.

He said they sometimes sang the chorus "Hi, hold your rum."
