Tune of the Day: The Yankee Doodle Boy

American patriotic song

This patriotic song was originally part of George M. Cohan's 1904 Broadway musical Little Johnny Jones. The play concerns the trials and tribulations of a fictional American jockey, Johnny Jones, who rides a horse named Yankee Doodle in the English Derby. Cohan incorporates snippets of several popular traditional American songs into his own, as he often did with his songs.
