Music from Appendix N: Vandy

This is allegedly the song behind Manly Wade Wellman's "Vandy, Vandy", but as David Drake says, "Certainly Manly was quite angry at Hoyt Axton for ‘getting it wrong’."

While there is some confusion if Manly Wade Wellman wrote the song himself, or if the song comes from the Civil War era, here is a link to the lyrics as attributed to Wellman. Axton's version uses slightly different lyrics.
