Soldier's Joy

This is one of the most popular fiddle tunes in Europe and the Americas.

It has been played in Scotland for over 200 years, and Robert Burns used it for the first song of his cantata 'The Jolly Beggars'.


Sometimes dancers would sing this to the tune,


Do you want some bread and butter for your tea old man?

Do you want some bread and butter for your tea old man?

Dance the Soldier's Joy.
