Adieu To The Star Spangled Banner Forever
By: Ella Clark, J.R. Boulcott
Written by: Ella Clark, J.R. Boulcott
This is a song from the Male Quartette Collection, the greatest book ever compiled.
Beck, in creating Song Reader, filled it out with lots of references to older sheet music. This is especially true with a lot of the patriotic or war-based song titles he used.
This is one of those references, as "Adieu!! To The Star Spangled Banner Forever" is the name of a song from 1861
. It apparently was written by a Southerner, in response to the North's "Star Spangled Banner" and express the idea of abandoning the old American flag for the new Confederate one.
