Thanks, that's good information, people. Another tune that crossed the Atlantic is Bonnie Blue Flag of the Confederacy. The original version is an Irish tune know as The Jaunting Irish Car (I think). The Irish Brigade put their own words to it. For that matter, Marching through Georgia, a tune often played by Sherman's men as they tore through the South has an Irish version as well. Whiskey in the Jar has an Irish Brigade version too, which I really like.

Tyler, Google David Wilke and Cowboy Celtic for more examples...Dave researched the connection between the Cowboy world and Irish and Scottish music. He created a new sound...our harpist did her masters in ethnomusicology on the band...one prime example is the famous Cowboy song "The Streets of Laredo" that came from the 1600's Ireland and was originally called "The Bard of Armagh" Michael Martin Murphey sang it on our Wrangler awarded album for outstanding album of the year for 1999... Arthur Cormac also sang a track that was the last known Cowboy song written in gaelic, in Montana...countless examples on the 7 albums we released if you are curious.
