Subject: RE: Help: Viva la Quinta Brigada
This song happens to have several versions, as usual with so many folk songs, depending on the different situations and units. The original (?) song (The Carmela) I heard in Tunis sung by a pretty Spanish student in 1969. It runs like in Sorcha's source, but starting with "el Exercito del Ebro". So also on a disc with songs of the Republican Army recorded by a French team during the war and published about 1937/38.
