IIRC, it's "Froggie Went a-Courtin'." The one with the "keemo-kymo" type chorus.

Alvin mutters "Sourwood Mountain" ("I got a gal...") a couple of times.

Soundtrack listing at imdb gives several: Sergeant York soundtrack, including I got a gal... Froggie not listed (doesn't mean it didn't appear; I suspect small snippets never make it to the soundtrack listing)

"Michi Cambo"(sp?)

Pretty sure it was a common folk song back in the day. Also pretty sure I butchered the spelling.

I met Luke once back in the early 50's, I was about 5 or 6 . It was in Ramsgate Kent. I don't know why he was there but he was just getting into his limo when I caught his eye. He shook hands with me and gave me sixpence.

I'll never forget that moment. It was my first brush with fame.

Cheers

Bugsy

There's a YouTube video of that scene from Sgt York, with Luke singing Froggie Went a-Courtin' on his mule, at:

Actually this is the song that was sung by the the Old guy who rode the mule in from Jim town, and told them that Roosevelt has declared war again Germany.

Sorry for not doing this part I am used to it being done by the website and have forgotten the old school use of coding.

Um, it's 1917.

Wilson, not Roosevelt, was declaring war.

The song was Froggy went a courtin. My mother used to sing it to me. She had a different version in that the chorus words were similar but not exactly the same. Hers, and I am spelling phonetically were. Froggy went a courtin he did ride, lidabo rinktum chinemo. Lidabo rinktum captain caro bonume she kinemo, zen nikibaum nikibaum lidabo rinktum lidabo rinktum chinemo.

Frog Went A-Courtin’
Kentucky Folk Song
1. Frog went a courtin’ and he did ride.
Rinktum body minchy cambo.
Sword and buckler by his side.
Rinktum body minchy cambo.

REFRAIN: Kimaneero down to Cairo, Kimaneero Cairo.
Shaddle-addle-adababa, ladababa linktum.
Rinktum body minchee cambo.

2. He rode right to Miss Mousie’s door,
Found Miss Mousie sweepin’ the floor. REFRAIN

3. He took Miss Mousie on his knee,
And said “Miss Mousie will you marry me?” REFRAIN

4. Without my Uncle Rat’s consent,
I could not marry the president. REFRAIN

5. Uncle Rat laughed and shook his sides,
To think his niece would be a bride. REFRAIN

6. Who will make the wedding gown?
Old Miss Rat from Pumpkin Town. REFRAIN

7. Where will the wedding supper be?
Way down yonder in a hollow tree. REFRAIN

8. What will the wedding supper be?
A fried mosquito and a black-eyed pea. REFRAIN

9. First to come was a bumblebee,
He set his fiddle on his knee. REFRAIN

10. Next to come was a doodle bug,
Carrying a water jug. REFRAIN

11. Next to come was a flying moth,
She laid out the table cloth. REFRAIN

12. Next to come was an itty-bitty flea
To dance a jig for the bumblebee. REFRAIN

13. Next to come was a big old cow,
She wanted to dance but she didn’t know how. REFRAIN

14. Next to come was a big black snake;
He ate up all the wedding cake. REFRAIN

15. Last to come was an old gray cat;
She swallowed up the mouse and ate up the rat. REFRAIN

16. Mr. Frog went hopping over the brook;
A duck came along and swallowed him up. REFRAIN

17. Now is the end of him and her;
Guess there won’t be no tadpoles covered with fur! REFRAIN

18. Little piece of cornbread lying on the shelf,
If you want any more you can sing it yourself. REFRAIN
