I set a song to that tune; I don't know if it was the one you
heard.  My song has a chorus like this:

  Bye, bye to the Pensic War.  I
  Brought a flagon in my wagon;
  Now my flagon is dry.
  Those good ol' knights are drinkin' whiskey and rye
  Singin', "This'll be the third time I die,
  This'll be the third time I die."

It has several stanzas on the subject of the Pennsic War, and
each stanza has one or two puns in it.

Sound familiar?
