I am looking for information about a song played in General JEB Stuart's camp called Bonnie Jean. It is apparently different from the version collected by Robert Burns. I am seeking sheet music, MP3, or video. The only reference I have is by a Confederate Texas soldier who saw Bob Sweeney playing it on the march. He was playing it on a banjo. Thanks.
It was quite common that the melodies and lyrics sung in America were different than those performed in Scotland. I will have my Scottish expert (Elaine) look into this.
Elaine had downloaded it a while ago. Here is a link to our copy:
Let me know if you have any problem downloading it. It is in a public download folder.
Thanks! This helps a lot!
