Tune of the Day: Vive la Compagnie

Traditional American song

In spite of the French title, this song does not come from France! The origin of the tune has been traced back to a drinking song published by F.D. Benteen in Baltimore in 1844, and a German version has been traced back to 1818. During the American Civil War, it was the tune for the 1861 Confederate song “Chivalrous C.S.A.”

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
