GOVERNOR TAYLOR'S MARCH. AKA and see "Brian Boru's Slow March," "Officer on Guard (The)," "Officer of the Guard (The)," "I Won't Be a Nun (1)," "Denis Murphy's Hornpipe," "Tyrone's Ditches." American, March (2/4 time). USA, southwestern Pa. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Bayard (1981) identifies related tunes, perhaps from a common ancestor, as "Pewter Mug," "Tin-Ware Lass (The)," and "Ladies Dressed in Their Garments So Green (The)." However, it seems a variation of the Irish march/hornpipe tune family, for which see the alternate titles, above. Bayard notes that the tune is called "Napoleon Crossing the Alps (4)" in Dr. Keith Norman MacDonald's Gesto Collection (1895), but the title usually belongs to other tunes.
