|Love Playing Civil War songs since about 6 months ago I took up the fife...One of my favorites to play is "The Girl I left behind me" not only because I like th music if you ever find the words which you can on beafifer.com its about a guy leaving his wife and leaving her a bunch of nothing behind..And I dont think he going off to war he is going off with another woman...other favorites
Bonnie Blue flag
Battle Cry of freedom
When Johnny comes marching home
GarryOwen ( which is not a person but a place near Limrick )
Yankee Doodle (which was a song the British played making fun of the Yanks)
Are just a few that I love to fife out...
Try fifeing you may just like it...
Just obtained a Period Civil War fife (Firth and Pond) 61 to 63 contracted to make 1000 of these for the Union, on e-bay...It was not cheap but I won it..
