Thread Name: Tune Req: When The King Enjoys His Own Again
Subject: RE: Tune To When The King Enjoys His Own Again
There is no tune called "The World turned upside down" in any American songbook, tune book, or manuscript of the 18th century cataloged in the 'National Tune Index', this includes fifing books and fife tutors to 1808, and some books of military music, and 18th century fife manuscripts. [Nor is there in any English or Scots book or manuscript cataloged.]

I will believe that about the tune in fifing books when I see the tune, and adequate evidence of its source.
