DRUNKEN SAILOR , THE. American, March (2/4 time). USA, southwestern Pa. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. This fife march is not related to any of the above versions, and Bayard (1981) has identified it as a 2/4 version of "St. Patrick's Day in the Morning." It seems unique under this title to Bayard's source.
